Title ^a^c 1 I 

Being recognized as the liberal arts 
college with the highest percentage of in- 
ternational students in the nation is only one 
of the ways in which Eckerd College is 
"Breaking All Boundaries." Whether they are 
cultural, social, religious, sexual, athletic, or 
intellectual, everyone faces boundaries they 
must overcome. What better place to do 
this than in a college environment such as 
Eckerd, with students from 49 states and 62 

Freshmen, seniors, and foreign stu- 
dents are three groups that tend to face 
considerable boundaries. For freshmen, 
college is a completely new experience, a 
new perspective on life and on the way they 
view the world. Each has a different back- 
ground and different life experiences. As 
they all come together duringAutumnTcrm 
they begin to learn of the diversity they can 
share with one another. 

On the other end of the spectrum are 
Eckerd's seniors who have grown by "Break- 
ing All Boundaries" in their four years of col- 
lege. Their final boundary is graduation. 
Once breaking this boundary they delve 
into all the boundaries pre.sented by the real 

world. The lessons learned through their 
experiences at Eckerd wiU help them over- 
come the bigger boundaries they will face 
outside the walls of Eckerd College. 

Eckerd's foreign students are placed 
in a completely new and different environ- 
ment. Through Eckerd's ELS program they 
are tested in their English proficiency and 
can take English courses until they are flu- 
ent enough to become Eckerd College stu- 
dents. Eckerd also offers courses specifi- 
cally for its foreign students to help them 
acclimate to the American culture. 

Social boundaries are a big part of 
college life. TTirough living arrangements, 
social events, and clubs students begin to 
break these boundaries. Living on campus 
requires students to broaden their horizons 
and get to know their dormates. Different 
events on campus enable a social environ- 
ment in which all .students can intermingle 
and have a gof)d time.C^iubs enable individu- 
als tf) break more social boundaries by meet- 
ing others and gelling involved on campus. 
Some clubs address and educate on issues 
such as sexual and religious boundaries. 

With 17 Division 11 athletic teams and 

6 club teams, the athletic diversity on cam- 
pus is considerable. Competitive sports 
teams pose many physical boundaries that 
members must overcome. Students not in- 
volved in these often intermingle with the 
athletes in the gym and around campus. 
Eckerd is a very healthy campus where jog- 
ging, roller blading, or working out in the 
fitness and weight rooms allow students to 
break personal physical and athletic boimd- 
aries through self-discipline in staying fit. 

All students must face academic and 
intellectual boundaries since that is of 
course the real purpose of college. Taking 
many different classes provides students 
with very diverse and well-rounded aca- 
demic backgrounds. The liberal arts curricu- 
lum at Eckerd gives all students the oppor- 
tunity to break intellectual boundaries. 

College is a time of learning and a time 
of growth. It becomes a melting pot of in- 
formation and stimuli from which all stu- 
dents can develop. The different cultures 
and backgrounds represented in the student 
body make Eckerd an ideal place for"Break- 
ingAll Boundaries!"

boundaries of "Camp Eckerd" and get in touch with the

one can hear the squeals of joy as students receive letters

At Eckerd College, students break all 
joundaries by getting together and having fun, 
10 matter who they are. Events are always in 
surplus, and even when there is nothing 
planned, there is a lot to do. From complex 
parties to Spring Fest the students at Eckerd 
:ome together. There are so many activities 
hat unite the student body as one, including 
leveral comedians and hypnotists that provide 
:omic relief from everyday life. Parties, 
vhether they be registered complex parties 
iuch as Delta Flashback, Epsilon Big Easy, Zeta 
ialloween. Beta Tropics, Nu Mardi Gras, 

Gamma Goes Greek, and Kappa Kamival, or un- 
registered such as Nu Around The World and 
Kappa Punch, are always a good time. Other 
events include Homelycoming, Pack Your Bags, 
the Lily Fair Spring Fest, and the Spring Ball. Stu- 
dents also come out to see various speakers and 
concerts throughout the year 

All these events bring the student body 
together, despite their differences, adding to 
Eckerd's unique environment. Diversity does 
not liinder students from having fun, in fact, it 
adds to the spice of their lives. This diverse en- 
vironment helps create variety in the types of 

parties, and it helps create competition between 
the houses or complexes. 

Sometimes competition can be a very 
good thing. During AutumnTerm, the freshmen 
went all out in the Funlympics as the complexes 
competed against each other The three-way- 
tie at the end showed that everyone wins at 
Eckerd. The all male dorms, Hiaasen and 
Kennedy fight it out in their own way, with 
Hiaasen's Bullshit Ballet and Kennedy's 
Shamrockd. Each of these events shows that 
each dorm has its pride and unity which spreads 
to the complex and out to the rest of the school. 
Wliile there is competition, it only adds to the 
Eckerd College spirit, something that will never 
be compromised. 

The complex parties are a time to relax 
and wind down in an environment of fun and 
excitement. Most of the parties involve dress- 
ing up. This allows people to add variety to 
their everyday garb. It also provides a chance 
to escape from the topical weekday. Delta Flash- 
back brings out people's creativity and what 
they remember of their favorite era, Epsilon Big 
Easy swings along with those who love to dance, 
and of course, at Zeta Halloween everyone goes 
all out and disguises him or herself behind a 
costume for the night. At Beta Tropics, the ob- 
ject of the night is to see who can get "lei d" the 
most. Instead of dressing up like Halloween, 
the students wear as little as possible to get the 
full island effect. Nu Mardi Gras and Gamma 
Goes Greek are festive in their own special way 
with beads and togas. These are a great way to 
get away from the traditional jeans and T-shirt 
and to get out and see other students in their 

Diversity can build walls in some situa- 
tions, but at Eckerd, students tend to use their 
diverse enviroiunent to break down all bound- 
aries. They come together to learn and to have 
fun. The unity of Eckerd students holds them 
together and will stay with them forever They 
know that together they can break all bound-

The First 

Three Weeks 

of Freedom 

"Autumn Term"-To most of the world 
these two words are meaningless, but to an 
Eckerd student they represent the period of life 
when high school and home are left behind to 
face the greater challenges of college life. What 
exact!}' is AutumnTerm? According to the hand- 
book/It is designed for freshmen only and pro- 
N'ides an intensive foretaste of college li\'ing and 
academic work." In other words, it is a three 
week period when freshmen have a chance to 
become familiar with their new home and class- 
mates before the "big kids " return. Filled with 
activities, seminars, ice-breakers, outings, and of 
course class. Autumn Term is definitely one of 
the things that makes Eckerd College unique. 

This year, eager activatiors planned a busy 
schedule for the new freshmn. Autmn Term 
began with the traditional and inspirational" Fes- 
tival of Lights" ceremony on Saturday evening. 
Students barely had time to breathe as they 
raced to events like "Go For It "ice-breakers, the 
Hawaiian-themed dance, the barbecue and pool 
party at President Armacost's house, the ASPEC 
picnic, Funlympics, carnival games, the ice 
cream social, trips to the beach, mall and muse- 
ums, seminars about drinking and safe sex, and 
movie nights. Of course, they somehow still 
found time on their own to check out the sur- 
roimding St. Petersburg area through trips to 
the mall. Fort DeSoto, Pass-a-Grille Beach, "Yl^or 
(;ity, Tampa Bay Devil Rays games, Busch Gar- 
dens, and restaurants like The Hurricane andAi 

Believe it or not. Autumn Term was not 
just about fun, students had to attend class for three hours ever}' weekday morning. From "So 
\()u want to be a doctor " to "Making Musical Instruments in Ceramics " to "Artistic Geniuses from 
Spain: Lorcal, Brunei, Dali'each class provided students with the opportunit)- to take an in-depth 
look at a subject the\ might never have had the chance to experience otherwise. Furthermore, 
the Autumn Term classes opened students' eyes to the demands of college study. 

All in all, Autmn Term '98 was one that will remain in the memories of over four hundred 
freshmen from all corners of the globe forever. By the end of the three weeks, the campus was 
no longer foreign and strange faces were by then familiar. As Missy Czieki and Mandy Guide said, 
"The friends we made during Autumn Term will be friends for life."

Nu Steals the 
Lime Light 

At any other run-of-the-mill university, 
there is topically a designated day when there 
is a football game with alumni sitting in the 
stands, a Queen, and a dance. They call it Home- 
coming. As is representative of its student body, 
Eckerd breaks these traditions. While Eckerd 
^f» ^^^^m^^^^^^^^m does not have a football team, the students defi-

^m ^^ ^^H^^^^^^^^ '*" interesting twist, allowing for open 

^M J^F ^^^^1 mindedness and a creative attitude. A drag 

/^'^^ ^|B ^ i*«tt queen contest allows the guys to dress up as 

women. Rather than having a formal dance, 
Eckerds Homelycoming is wrapped up with a 
"Wild Video Dance Party" held in the casual set- 
ting of Slater's Woods. 

This year there were a lot of events at the 
same time, which pulled some of the attention 
away from Homelycoming. It was hard for some 
students to decide which events to go to. The 
rugby team had to reschedule their game to 
earlier in the day, but the soccer game could 
not be rescheduled. Fortunately, the fields are 
next to each other so people could go back and 
forth between the two, but neither event got 
the viewing it deserved. 

While there were smaller crowds of 
people than expected, the events went very 
well. The games were a success, the final out- 
come was that Nu beat the alumni in their game, 
and in the women's game, alumni and students 
joined together and formed their own teams out 
of the conglomeration. Many boundaries were broken, especially in that there was a women's 
football game, a sport usually left to men. The women's team was more intermingled though with 
students and alumni playing on each team due to a shortage of players. 

While the women were bus>' playing football, the men had to take over the beauty pageant. 
The drag queen contest was hilarious, some of the guys looked entirely too good as women. The 
princess was EUe (Michael Ell), looking more lavish than ever, and the Homelycoming 1998 Drag 
Queen was Venus Cleremy Zmijewski).They looked stunning as they strutted their stuff. Venus 
went all out, and even had slaves carrying her/him on a throne. It was a sight for sore eyes. 

Palmetto Productions put a lot of effort into Homelycoming. While the afternoon events 
were a success, the dance part)' did not draw much of a crowd. This was partially due to two 
unregistered parties at Nu, which attracted more people than the video dance party. It was 
frustrating to the organizers of Homelycoming. They worked hard to combine the parties, mov- 
ing the video dance party to Nu, but housing would not allow these boundaries to be broken. 
Few people attended the video dance party and it got cut short due to the cord being ripped out 
of the plug. Most people went to Nu instead. Even though the planned event did not turn out, the 
party still went on, just in a different place.

Both Kappa and Nu have well desen'ed reputations as partv' complexes at Eckerd. Kappa is 
known for its rebellious attitude, laid back atmosphere, and the familiar scent of burning 
furniture. Nu is more known for its close knit communit}- of upperclassmen, preppy atmosphere, 
and frequent parties. Part of both complexes' reputations comes from their unregistered, non- 
Palmetto, parties; Kappa Punch and NuAround the World. These parties,held many times through- 
out the year, attract many eager students to the respective complexes where they partake in 
either the intoxicating brew of Kappa Punch or a series of shooters Around the World at Nu. 

These two parties differ from Palmetto parties because they focus on a beverage instead of 
a theme. Both parties also charge a fee. Nu is S5 for as many times Around the World one might 
want or actualh' be able to travel, while Kappa charges $3-S5 depending on the amount that a 
person thinks that they can drink. After paying, students receive an anarchy sign on their hand 
for Punch or a peice of yarn to be used as a wristband at Nu (although some students are advised 
to wear them elsewhere). Each suite in Nu has a different shooter, from Lemondrops and tequilla 
to Blow Jobs and Sex on the Beach. The secret fruity mix of Kappa Punch is usually ser\ed from 
the complex lounge. Due to the high alcohol conent of both drinks, the intoxication level of the 
parngoers is quite high as is the amount of litter and destruction at both complexes. 

The mood at each part^' differs as much as the reputation held by each complex. At Nu the 
party takes place both in the suites and outside on the deck, while at Kappa most of the action 
occurs in the lounge or outside. Music is also key at both parties. Loud dance beats motivate 
dancers on the deck at Nu. At Kappa an 

ecclectic mix of music is played by live bands 
and stereos throughout the complex. Bon-fires 
are common on an\' given night at Kappa but 
become even more popular on Punch nights. 
Kappa's part)' seems a bit more chaotic than 
.Nil's because of the complex layout and the 
large numbers of people crowding into the 
loimge and surrounding area. Nu's circular lay- 
out makes it more contained and stimulates the 
practice of laps around Nu from suite to suite. 

Freshmen tend to be a bit more intimi- 
dated by the Nu part)' because of the number 
of upperclassmen. Kappa Punch also discour- 
ages some people because of its reputation for 
intoxicants other than alcohol. Regardless of 
these obstacles, many underclassmen attend 
both parties, especially the first Kappa Punch 
since it is the first big part)' of the year. 

Many people noted a tighening of alco- 
hol policies b)' both C:ampus Safet)' and the Resi- 
dential Life staff this year. As a result, Securit)' 
broke boundaries at this years second Kappa 
Punch b) confiscating the cooler that the Punch 
was made in. This marks the first time in the 
histor)' of the part)' that a Kappa Punch has 
been busted. Regardless of the circumstances, 
the part)' continued well into the night. 

Both of these parties were very success- 
ful throughout the year and highly attended, 
keeping traditions alive at each complex. Both 
Nu and Kappa kept their reputations with both 
Punch and Around the World, as well as their 
typical weekend reputations and their normal 
Palmetto parties.

The first two complex parties of the year, Delta Flashback and Epsilon Big Easy, offered 
opportunities for Eckerd students to break the boundaries of droning study routines, typical 
weekend activities, and small college parties by bringing large groups of students together in 
revelry and fun! In addition, both parties encouraged students to break the boundaries asso- 
ciated with time. 

In honor of the traditional first part}', Delta Flashback, students dressed in garb from 

their favorite decade, whether it was the 50s, 
60s, 70s, or 80s. A few even courageously 
dawned apparel from the 1990s in a dramatic 
show of current fashion. Despite rain and foul 
weather, the party was a success. Senior Mel- 
issa Wolfman was amazed that the party at- 
tracted so many students. "I was surprised how 
crowded it was in spite of all the rain! " she said. 
In fact, swarms of students crowded into the 
Delta complex lounge, appropriately renamed 
the Delta Diner in true fashion, to enjoy tunes 
from their favorite rockin' eras. The "Diner" of- 
fered a small soda shop appeal, complete with 
a 50s style waitress serving sodas with a 90s 
twist-she wore roUerblades instead of roller 

Epsilon Big Easy drew students back in 
time even further, drawing on influences of the 
1940s and encouraging students to strut their 
stuff in swing attire. The complex organized 
swing lessons before the party got underway. 
Reece Roberson, Director of Campus Activities, 
stopped by for a peek at the activities. He com- 
mented, "It was really cool to see people taking 
advantage of the opportunity to learn how to 
swing!" With the lessons completed, the party 
started, the swing music played, and people got 
down to showing their stuff Around midnight, 
the party took on a more familiar feel as the DJ 
switched over to the popular dance music of 
the 90s. Students exhibited their proficiency 
in both past and current dance crazes through- 
out the party. 

Both Epsilon Big Easy and Delta Flashback 
offered students a glimpse into the past, a 
chance to party in the present, and hopes for 
more great complex parties in the future!

Halloween and Tropics 
Bring out the Costumes 

Beta Tropics 

"Come straddle the palm trees and suck on coconuts," was the advertising to get people to 
come and sing to the sun gods the night of Friday the 13th. But this was a LUCKA' 13th, Beta 
Tropics has a game-theme of "getting leid."If you say no to someone, you lose your lei to them, 
so everyone attempted to ask questions they'd normally get a negative answer to. Being creative 
with saying the "N" word was key People dressed in grass skirts, straw hats, bikini tops, and some 
bra\e...wore coconuts. 

Preparations were made with a sand pit and tiki torches. The island atmosphere mixed 
with the slight nip in the air as people danced 
to Reggae and attempted to "get leid." Kennedy 
House was actually not allowed to participate 
in the preparations or clean up. They were the 
ones responsible for the advertising, and au- 
thorities found it disrespectful and \-ulgar. De- 
spite their not being able to help, most of the 
guys at Kennedy stuck around for the part}'. 

Tropics broke boundaries in their music. 
There were four DJs from around campus, Gary 
Talarinojr (Morris), Bob Hirschfeld (Hiaasen), 
Alimed Rivera (Hiaasen), and Suleyman Bilgutay 
(Kennedy). The four DJs did not compete, but 
each had a one hour block to mix their music.

Zeta Halloween 

This year's Halloween festivities were ini- 
tialh plagued with problems, but eventuall)' 
turned out to be successfuU. The previous 
night's fire at Oberg House disrupted student 
life and kept the Resident Life staff awake the 
entire previous evening. For this reason, the 
part)' at Zeta Complex was shortened from the 
planned 10-2 time slot to midnight. And as a 
result of the tightened security around campus 
this year, the entire Resident Life staff was re- 
quested to stay on campus and serve as super- 
visors for the night's activities. The parry was 
attended by large numbers of Eckerd students 
from on and off campus, despite the shortened 
time span, and there were even a number of 
early partygoers. 

This year's participants masqueraded as 
Campus Safet)' officers, drug paraphernalia, 
beer, Dalmations, and a few black faceless cos- 
tumes. Several interesting members of the 
clergy attended the party, even a few pregnant 
nuns!! Angels and devils danced together and 
all other manner of creatures attended. The DJs 
of the night kept the masqueraders mo\ ing 
with current dance music.

Underclass and 

Upperclass Parties 

Both Successful 

Wlien it comes to parties, Eckerd has plenty of diversity, as seen between Nu and Alpha. In 
the past, Nu has held a winter semiformal, but this year it went to Alpha, as the first complex party 
they have hosted in a number of years. Nu only held one official party this year, their traditional 
Mardi Gras party. 

For many years,Alpha has attempted to hold a complex party with little success. This is due 
to many tilings, especially because it houses mostly freslimen who are new to the idea of com- 
plex parties. Tliis year's freslimen were success- 
ful, however, with their "SnowBall" semiformal 
held on the Fox Hall patio. The music was good, 
and, although mostly underclassmen, there was 
a respectable crowd for a first time party. Un- 
like other parties at Eckerd, the SnowBall served 
a dual purpose. It was a benefit for Sallie House, 
a children's home.Tlie kids helped decorate for 
the dance, and raffles throughout the night 
raised money for the cause. Raffle prizes ranged 
from gift certificates to TV sets. Alpha broke 
boundaries this year by joining in with the rest 
of Eckerd in the complex party tradition, offer- 
ing a different type of party, and creating bonds 
with the children. It gave a sense of hope for 
the upcoming holiday season. 

Almost the complete opposite of Alpha's 
Snowball, Nu Mardi Gras was a chaotic mass of 
people with one thing in mind - drinking and 
having a good time! It was held and highly at- 
tended by more upperclassmen. A difference 
could be seen between the party styles of the 
upper and under classes. Mardi Gras has always 
been one of the biggest parties of the year, and 
this year supported this tradition. With beads, 
decorations and shoulder to shoulder people, 
the balcony of Nu was the place to be. Each 
suite had a different theme to go with their 
floats. Students dressed up in masks and color- 
ful costumes, reflecting the parades of New 
Orleans. Needless to say, Nu Mardi Gras was a 
huge success; and the turnout was tremendous.

Clean your sheets, wear them, and see 
how creative you can be! Gamma Goes Greek 
put Eckerd students to this test with their first 
ever toga party. Gamma hosted a wide array of 
parties over the years. Their themes have not, 
however, always been a hit.They tried to have a 
•Rajun Cajun " party for the past few years, but 
had low attendance. This year they decided to 
try something new. They hosted Gamma Goes 
Cireek, a toga party. Offering students the chance 
to dress out of the ordinary is a sure way to get 
them out there partying and it worked. Gamma s 
parry this year, although not the most highly 
attended, was more successful than in previous 
years. Almost everyone dressed up in toga at- 
tire; most with colorful bed sheets and some 
more creative than others. Attendees crowded 
into the quad and had a great time. Who says 
Gamma doesn t know how to have a good time! 

In traditional Kappa style, their complex 
party was not like other complex parties, it had 
its own air of excitement and a fun spirit. Kappa 
Kamevil was more like a festival than a party. 
Kappa hired a number of games and amusement 
attractions.These included the Bouncing Room, 
the Joust (an oversized version of American 
Gladiators), and the Giant Boxing Ring. A lot of 
people waited in lines tor these free activities 
and it was quite humorous to watch the par- 
ticipants fight it out with oversized weapons 
and gloves. It would not be a true Karnevil 
though without Kappa's famous snow cones 
and some cotton candy. Unlike a real carnival 
with obseen prices, these goodies were free to 
all those who wished to indulge. Three bands, 
each with its own style, played as well. These 
were'Ovados ",a rap band, "WhenAll Else Fails ", 
a hard core band.and "Tribagio ",a Cuban band. 
The true fun-loving spirit of the Kappa crew 
was .seen at this ver>' popular complex party. 

Althougli different in their own ways, both 
Ciamma and Kappa's parties had similarities. 
Both involved a lot of people participating in 
non-ordinary party events. It's not every day that 
you get the opportunity to dress up in bed 

sheets or beat your roommate with oversized boxing gloves. With Gamma students could visit 
the times of ancient Greece whereas Kappa allowed students to revisit their childhood years of 
moon bounces and cotton candy. The diversity of the different complexes was also reflected in 
the diversity of their parties. Gamma is more traditional in their party style, while Kappa is 
vibrant and colorful. No matter what your style you could find it at one of these parties, both a 
huge success.

Kennedy and Hiaasen, two names that 
bring to mind boys running amuck, drinking, 
partying, and wreaking havoc on the Eckerd 
campus. Well, in fact, these two names mean a 
lot more. They mean male bonding, close-knit 
social circles, and great friendships. But of 
course not between the two groups - they are 
arch rivals. 

As the only two remaining all-male houses 
on the Eckerd campus, Kennedy and Hiaasen 
have become somewhat infamous in their time. 
Eckerd may not have any fraternities, but these 
two groups of boys come pretty close to it with 
their tiglitly knit brotherhoods and animosity 
towards one another Kennedy boys and Hiaasen 
guys are an Eckerd norm, and it seems that some 
of their behaviors are also considered as such. 
Take, for instance, the various traditions 
that have evolved out of the existence of these 
iKjuses - the biggest of these being Kennedy 
■Shamrock d and the Hiaasen Bullsliit Ballet. Two 
\ ery different parties, one great boundary-break- 
ing idea: put a bunch of rowdy, young college 
men together, add the incentive of a bunch of 
overworked students' to let loose, and what re- 
suits is one great party every time! 

Kennedy Shamrock'd is the traditional St. 
Patricks Day party hosted by those good oV 
Kennedy boys. They make every year a unique 
experience with variations on a DJ, bands, and 
the all-time favorite Jello slide. The Jello slide, 
set up behind Kennedy, was a hit; leaving par- 
ticipants completely green for the occasion. A 
mattress bounce, with one mattress to jump on, 
and one on the ceiling to bounce back down 
with, was a new invention this year 

Hiaasen counters Shamrock'd with their 

traditional event in the form of a ballet. Well, it 

is an interpretive dance at the very least. The 

guys practiced for two to three months prior 

to their end-of-the-year performance. The night 

of the performance they warmed up in true 

Hiaasen fashion and put on their best faces in 

front of a packed auditorium. This year's theme, 

"Saving Ryan's Privates," brought together the 

best of the current film media along with"Viagra-driven joke wars. The ballet was followed by one 

last blow out back at their dorm. The rest of the campus was invited to join in their celebration 

and have a great night. 

"Whenever Kennedy or Hiaasen plans a party, there is bound to be fun involved - fun not 
only for the campus community, but for the men who live in these testosterone-peq3etuating 
environments. All in all, these events produce the sort of community among these men that 
many houses try to emulate. As Matt Hoffman, RA of Hiaasen sums up, "It was great. These events 
really united everyone."

Spring Fest 

Brings a 
Playful Spirit 


Spring Fest this year consisted of a wide 
variety of events held during the week of May 
2-8 . It was kicked off on Sunday in Slater's Woods 
with a number of vendors including free mas- 
sages and readings by the Psychic Mary.'IfTanya 
Could Talk " and "Spy vs. Spy" were two bands 
that played throughout the afternoon. No 
sooner did the sun set than did the blacklights 
come on. Blacklight volleyball was played to 
everyone s favorite 80's hits. Students painted 
their bodies with blacklight responsive paints 
and along with a neon volleyball, it added a lot 
of color to the darkness of the night .The Eckerd 
campus really got into the event. 

The Spring Dance Concert was held on 
Wednesday, and Bininger Theater was packed 
with students fulfilling their last College Pro- 
gram Series by experiencing the hidden talent 
of their fellow Eckerd students .The concert was 
something new to all those unfamiliar with mod- 
ern dance. The dancers moved the audience and 
posed the question of what message they were 
conveying through their performances. 

Friday night brought students out for a 
first time event - a live performance of "The 
Rocky Horror Picture Show.'The cast consisted 
of students who performed the show before a 
large screen on which the movie was playing. 
Before the performance was the virgin cer- 
emony, in which all "virgins "to the show had to 
do certain things they would never dream of 
doing. Activities such as dropping your pants 
and running, or licking whipped cream off 
someone else's stomach.The performers did an 

excellent job in reenacting "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," and it was an experience most will 
never forget. 

Spring Fest ended with the Spring Concert featuring the band "Everything "with opening 
band,"Elysian Sex Drive". This band had an incredible amount of talent and excellent stage 
presence. "Everything" was amazing. They got right to the heart of the viewers with the lead 
.singer coming off the stage to dance with the audience. Their talent goes way beyond their 
popular song "Hooch". Saxophones and trombones added a richer tone to the everyday guitar 
and drums and the .spirit of great times was definitely present.The concert was a huge success. 
The whole week was ftilJ of events that provided students with one last fling before being 
pelted with their dreaded finals.

An Evening in 
the Garden 

With a budget slightly bigger than year's 
past, Palmetto Productions was able to put on a 
Spring Ball better than those in previous years. 
The chosen theme was "An Evening in the Gar- 
den " which fit nicely with the romantic and el- 
egant setting of the ballroom at the Venoy in 
downtown St. Petersburg. 

The first 400 students to purchase tickets 
were lucky enough to receive embossed glasses 
with the themed logo, "An Evening in the Gar- 
den" on them. The glasses were a beautiful 
memento for a night of memorable possibili- 
ties. Tickets were sold in advance for $12 or 
$20 for two. At the door they were $15 or $25 
for two. 

The evening was an enchanting night in 
which the typical laid back Eckerd students 
were transformed as they put on their best for 
the formal affair. Old dresses and suits were 
pulled out of the closets from higli school proms 
and homecomings and new ones were pur- 
chased for those who could afford to do so. Of 
course the fim spirit of the student body was 
also ever present with some students using their 
creativity through unique attires, wigs, and other 
out of the ordinary accessories. 

A bus service was provided for aU stu- 
dents to and from the Eckerd campus to help 
prevent drunk driving. The bus was packed on 
all trips over with excited students ready to 
have a good time. It did require a little more 
waiting though because many students used 
this resource, especiaUy on the ride home as 
the dance ended and everyone raced to make 
it back on the first bus. 

Upon entering the classical entry-way to 
the ballroom, a wide spread of hors d'oeuvres 
and punches were laid out. Tables were set in full decoration and the dance floor was packed the 
whole night with lively attendees out to have a good time. Several bars lined the walls for those 
of age to purchase drinks of every sort. The stage up front held the DJ, but was also open to all 
those Eckerd students who wished to hop up and dance. 

A great variety of music was played throughout the evening. The DJ did his best to mix 
modern alternative, Latin, swing, hip-hop, 80's and other types of music to get everyone dancing. 
There was something for everyone. The students let lose and enjoyed good food, drink, and 
conversation as they showed off their moves on the dance floor. 

The magical evening will be remembered by most. Senior Sopliie Bretel commented, "It 
was beautiful: the place, the people, and the fun we all had." This statement seemed to be the 
consensus of the crowd. All in all,"An Evening in the Garden "definitely broke all the expectations 
and boundaries of past Spring Balls and will be remembered as a night of enchantment, which 
wUl be hard to top. Palmetto Productions definitely out did themselves this year to make it the 
best Spring Ball ever.

What could be more exciting than seeing your friends perform first-class circus tricks for 
an audience of hundreds? Or seeing a nationally-renowned band play right in your own back 
yard? How about enjoying a swing dancing lesson followed by some gambling? At Eckerd College 
students can do all of this and a lot more to have a good time. 

In 1998-99, Eckerd increased the breadth of its entertainment programming to include a 
number of comedians, hypnotists, and bands. Palmetto Productions, Campus Activities, ECOS, 
and a number of smaller organizations worked together to bring new life to the Eckerd College 
event calendar - a calendar that included performances from hypnotists Fred Winters and Tom 
Bresolda, comedian Eric O'Shea, and singer 'Eden Wliite." 

Because of their great popularity'. Palmetto brings in comedians and hypnotists every year. 
While they have had fluctuating luck with comedians due to different styles in sense of humor, 
the hypnotists have always been a hit. This is primarily due to the fact that students have a closer 
bond with the ■performers. " They get to see their roommates, friends, and classmates up on stage 
doing things they normally would not do. Hypnotists Fred Winters and Tom Bresolda had stu- 
dents doing ever)ihing from fishing, to dancing, to believing their body parts had changed size.

Eckerd's concert series this year. It was cre- 
ated as Eckerd's own smaller version of the lilith 
Fair with female fronted bands. The concert 
featured "Eden White " - a performer who is 
quickly gaining recognition for her warm vo- 
cals and strong messages through song. She 
and her band, who are from New York, opened 
for Sarah McLachlan at the real Lilith Fair last 
year Opening acts included "Trip 2 Go " and 
"Frog and Flower ', a band in which student Lova 
Patterson plays the guitar and does vocals and 
Shannon Gray plays the violin. 

Pack Your Bags, an annual Eckerd event, 
was done in conjunction with the Lily Fair this 
year. The three bands took the place of the usual 
DJ, but the raffles and prizes still remained the 
same. Students who registered for the raffle at 
the beginning of the night had plenty of oppor- 
tunities to win prizes such as CDs, T-shirts, gift 
certificates, tickets to museums and amusement 
parks, along with other things. Of course, the 
grand prize was drawn at the end of the night, 
this being the traditional trip for two to the 
Bahamas, won this year by juniorTeresa Balog. 

Palmetto also introduced a new event in 
the reorganization of campus parties with 
Spring Swing and Casino Night. The evening 
event featured swing music and free lessons all 
night outside on the Fox Hall patio, while poker 
tables, roulette wheels, and craps boards kept 
the crowds amused inside with free gambling 
for all students. 

Such a dizzying array of new activities, 
coupled with the already strong social calen- 
dar produced on behalf of the college each year 
ensured that students were kept busy on those 
evenings when they had a tendency to be a little 
less than academically inclined.

In an academic environment such as Eckerd, co-curricular learning is often stressed just 
as intensely as classroom instruction. Hence, the coUeges list of lecture series and educa- 
tional events are paid high billing and met with great enthusiasm throughout the year as a 
means of increasing one's educational breadth. Not only do these events benefit the Eckerd 
community, but the outside community as well since many are open to the public. 

There were a wide variety of speakers brought to the campus this year River Huston 
spoke about drinking responsibly Cliief James E. Billie of the Seminole tribe came with sto- 
ries, songs, and dances to educate his audience about the traditions of the Seminole Indians.A 
Tropical Ecologist from the University of Florida, Robert Godshalk, spoke about wildlife con- 
servation in the tropics. 

The lecture series in International Relations and Global Affairs continued to flourish 
and students from that major were treated to a series of internationally-respected individuals 
mvolved in research and action issues revolving around human riglits, international trade, and 
current events. Dr Andrew Nathan, professor of Political Science and the Director of the East 
Asian Institute at Columbia University, spoke about Chinese policies toward the U.S., Japan, 

and other important neighbors. 

One of the most notable higlilights of the 
year was the last minute introduction of the real 
Patch Adams to the speaker series. Dendy 
McNair Auditorium was flooded by both stu- 
dents and community members wishing to take 
away some small piece of the wisdom that Patch 
had to offer Another popular speaker was Barry 
Drake whose lecture on the history of rock and 
roll brouglit hundreds of students into the realm 
of music history. He discussed the history of 
music throughout the past tew decades. 

Something new this year was the "Last 
Lecttire Series.'This was a series of lectures done 
by Eckerd professors as if they were giving their 
last lecture ever For the first time ever, many 
students went voluntarily to hear their profes- 
sors talk, not just because they had to do it for 
course credit. It was great to see how much the 
students really cared about what their beloved 
professors had to say. 

Many events were held on campus this 
year that were also of serious nature. "An After- 
noon with George Gershwin "by pianists Gloria 
Bolivar and Leland Peck was an enjoyable addi- 
tion to Eckerd's music series.The annual "Times 
Festival of Reading "was held again this year as 
Eckerd's academic quad was transformed into 
a festive setting with storytellers, book signings, 
and a variety of booths. A new Eckerd event 
was "Discover Native America " in which repre- 
sentatives from a number of Indian tribes shared 
their culture, food, dances, and merchandise. 

Lectures and other educational opportu- 
nities abounded this year, and for the students 
who took advantage of the experience, the re- 
sults were proven phenomenal, both in and out 
of the classroom.

Seniors Say Last Good-byes 

Welcome to the Real World," David Cozad said at the Baccalaureate. 
Most graduates hear that in some way, shape or form, but most feel that they 
already have been living in the real world all their lives. The Baccalaureate 
was a beautiful service in the chapel with c;haplain Clover Beal and former 
chaplain David Cozad speaking eloquently and spiritually to the soon to be 
graduates. Many words of encouragement and congratulations were spoken 
throughout graduation weekend. 

Sunday morning. May 23, the Commence- 
ment ceremony was held for the graduating class 
of 1999. Friends and family lined up outside the 
gym as early as 8:00 AM for the 10:00 ceremony 
They waited in the stifling heat for the chance to 
get a good seat to view their graduate in his or her 
special moment. 

The processional was lead by bagpipe play- 
ers, professors and staff Throughout the ceremony 
many inspirational speeches were made to encour- 
age and congratulate the graduates. The welcome 
was given by Michele Merves,the commencement 
address was issued by Allen Splete, the President 
of the Council of Independent Colleges, and the 
farewell was spoken by Donald Prather 

Special Awards were issued by President 
Armacost. These included. The Philip Lee Award, 
received by Michelle Pratt;The Ronald Wilson Me- 
morial Award, received byTarjn FieldenThe Miller 
Award, received by UIaineWashington;The James 
H. Robinson Award, received by Dana Bibbs; The 
Robert A. Staub Distinguished Teacher Award, re- 
ceived by Professor William Felice; and the recog- 
nition ofTaryn Fielder as Florida's 1998-99 Leader 
of the Year. 

While graduations are events to be taken se- 
riously, it can hardly be such in the case of Eckerd 
students. The graduates were lively and excited 
about their accomplishments and celebrated 
throughout the ceremony with bubbles being 
blown and beach balls bouncing.The solemnity of 
the occasion was retained however in the gradu- 
ates' maturity in knowing when to play and when 
to listen. 

The class of 1999 broke away from the norm 
with their caps and gowns, as many students deco- 
rated them with an individual flair. Many students 
painted symbols, sayings, and even fire ants on their 
gowns. Those students graduating with degrees 
from multiple collegiums mixed their two colors 
in unique ways. All in all, it was a ver>' colorful cer- 
emony as was the .spirit of this graduating class. 

After proudly walking across the stage to re- 
ceive their well deserved diplomas, the 308 gradu- 
ates of the class of 1999 paraded proudh out into 
the sunshine, the arms of their friends and loved 
ones and a world full of new challenges and bound- 
aries to overcome. 

Saying good-bye was the hardest part of the 
ceremony, for graduates and underclassmen alike - 
undercla.ssmen watched their friends leave and the 
graduates went their separate ways. The bonds 
formed here at Eckerd College, however, will last a 
lifetime, and even though they may no longer li\x 
right down the hall from one another tnie frieml- 
ships are everlasting.

The essence of academic life at Eckerd College re- 
volves around six coUegiums. The requirements 
for graduation, such as the writing portfolio and 
foreign language compe- 
tency are components of 
the Foimdations Collegium. 
The Behavioral Sci- 
ences Collegium seeks to 
introduce students to the 
methodology of the social 
sciences and helps students 
better understand the dif- 
ferent parts of the social 
universe. Sociology, Eco- 
nomics. Management, Politi- 
cal Science, and Psychology 
majors come together 
through the Behavioral Sci- 
ences department. Clubs 
and activities for the Behav- 
ioral sciences Collegium 
are sponsored through the 
individual majors such as 
the Psychology Club and 
the Society for the Advance- 
ment of Management. 

The Comparative Cul- 
tures Collegium promotes 
international understand- 
ing and sponsors activities 
such as language and cultural festivals. Majors in this col- 
legium include Anthropology, Modern Languages, and In- 
ternational Business. 

The Creative Arts Collegium supports the under- 
standing of the arts and sponsors events througliout the 
year including music festivals and art shows. Within the 
Creative Arts Collegium, the majors include Theatre, Mu- 
sic, Literature, Art, Creative Writing, and Human Develop- 

The Letters Collegium majors include Women's and 
Gender Studies, Religious Studies, History,American Stud- 
ies, and Philosophy The primary goal of the Letters Col- 
legium is to promote the study of the humanities in or- 
der to produce well-rounded individuals. 

The main agenda of the Natural Sciences Collegium 
is to educate students about the sciences. Physics, Math- 
ematics, Marine Science, Environmental Science, Biology, 
Chemistry, and Computer Science are majors foimd within 
this collegium. As a group, they sponsor speakers through- 
out the year and fund summer research programs for stu- 
dents. In addition to these, many scientific, student-run 
clubs and organizations aUow suidents to further the aca-

' have to take what? 


GeneraDy, college students cringe and 
groan upon hearing the phrase 
"required courses" as thoughts of bor- 
ing math, language, and composition classes 
come to mind. At 
Eckerd College, how- 
ever, that term has a 
whole new meaning. 
The general education 
program at Eckerd is 
designed to not only 
make sure students 
have a strong back- 
ground in the basics, 
but also to push them 
to become well- 
rounded and cultural 
adults who possess a 
love for learning. Stu- 
dents are also encour- 
aged to delve into sub- 
jects outside their ma- 
jors, so they can reach 
their full potential and 
function in a world of 
diversity. Principle 
courses include: West- 
em Heritage in a Glo- 
bal Context, Quest for 
Meaning, and four per- 
spective courses. 

The perspective courses, in particular, 
broaden students' horizons. Aesthetic perspec- 
tives introduce students to the arts and provide 
a foundation in which they may critique works 
of beauty. Global perspectives invite students 
to open their minds to different cultures 
throughout the world. Environmental perspec- 
tives enable students to question the conse- 
quences of their own actions on the environ- 
ment. .Scientific perspectives help students ac- 
knowledge the strengths and limits of science, 
as well as, the different scientific issues in their 
own lives. Finally, social relations perspectives 
address analytical and ethical issues in the con- 
text of human interaction. 

The combination of the perspective 
courses.Western Heritage in a Global Context, 
and Quest for Meaning .serve to fulfill Eckerd 
College's mission to develop well-rounded, in- 
telligent, and capable individuals.

By Leigh Lewis 

Aside from required 
classes, Eckerd has 
come up with the con- 
cept of a writing port- 
folio to test the writ- 
ing competence of its 
students. Instituted 
here at Eckerd in 1988, 
this requirement pro- 
vides more open 
guidelines for students 
to demonstrate their 
writting abilities than 
in a typical composi- 
tion class. Suzan 
Harrison, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Rhetoric in 
Foundations, says that 
the writing portfolio 
is, "a requirement de- 
signed to affirm stu- 
dents' ability to write 
confidently before 
they graduate." Portfo- 
lios are read and evalu- 
ated by professors in 
each collegium and an 
average of 90% of stu- 
dents pass each year. 

Western Heritage students become quite accustomed to going to periodic lectures in Dendjp 
McNair. Freshmen listen to Scott Ward's discussion on The Inferno early one mornmg.

n an effort to help students break academic 
boundaries and achieve overwhelming aca- 
demic success, Eckerd College hosts a 
unique program of 
academic mentoring. 
Students are assigned 
to a mentor in their 
first year at the school 
and later select a men- 
tor within their cho- 
sen field of study who 
will be able to aid in 
course selection, aca- 
demic and extracur- 
ricular success, and 
career counseling. 

Mentors play a 
variety of roles within 
the academic realm of 
the college. Besides 
teaching classes and 
grading student work, 
mentors may nomi- 
nate outstanding stu- 
dents for special rec- 
ognition such as 
Who's Who, write let- 
ters of recommenda- 
tion for graduate pro- 
grams, maintain stu- 
dent records, or cater 
to students with special concerns or problems. 
With all of these responsibilities, it's amazing 
sometimes that mentors have time at all to pur- 
sue outside interests. 

The mentor program gives Eckerd College 
a distinctive edge over larger universities in 
which contact with professors is often limited 
if not altogether nonexistent. A successful stu- 
dent-mentor relationship is a necessity in as- 
sisting the needs of Eckerd College students. 
Mentors provide students with a personal con- 
nection to the faculty, the administration, and 
the underlying structure of Eckerd College. 

By serving students and fulfilling all of 
these important roles, the mentors of Eckerd 
College provide an invaluable resource to stu- 
dents and the college as a whole. Helping oth- 
ers break boundaries is what their job is all

The Bckerd 

Day by Day 


It's all well and good for Eckerd College students 
to drag themselves to a 1-3 hour lecture on a daily 
basis; after all it is an integral part of the learning pro- 
cess. Classes are certainly 
somewhat of a necessity in 
order for students to secure 
from their professors the 
facts, ideas, and opinions 
not presented in textbooks 
and to clarify points not 
fully understood from read- 
ings. Truthfully though, this 
exercise tends to be tedious 
and downright boring, 
henceforth enters the 
"other stuff" The stuff that 
is, as many people wUl ar- 
gue, more important than 
the absorption of academic 
facts and their regurgitation 
in the form of test taking. 
These are the other inter- 
actions which impact stu- 
dents on a different level, 
help shape their personali- 
ties, aid them in growing 
spiritually, expose them to 
new and broader perspec- 
tives, and. ..surprise, 
surprise... are the things 

they actually remember years later (after all those mind- 
numbing facts have been long-forgotten). They also tend 
to be more fun. 

These are the things which help students break 
through life's boundaries and ascend to a higher level of 
personal growth. Luckily, for Eckerd students (probably 
more so than they are willing to admit), these things are 
abound at this institution. From the ASPEC program to 
mentorship. opportunities for study/travel abroad toWin- 
terTerm courses, and the ELS program to such a diverse 
student body, Eckerd provides its students with an array 
of these opportunities. Many of these interactive oppor- 
tunities are unique to Eckerd and help to create and ful- 
fill more than just a college education, but rather, "The 
College Experience."

Anyone looking for action had to look no 
fiither this year than to the Eckerd College ath- 
letic teams who had it all. This year,Triton teams 
broke records, set new goals, and reached new 
heights. The sports teams started out strong, 
with lots of new talent and good old fashion 
teamwork. All of these qualities were needed 
as the Triton teams strove to be their best. Wliile 
a competitive spirit always lingers in the air at 
any athletic event, there is much more that 
Eckerd's sports teams strove to achieve than just 
competition. For most Triton teams it was the 
hard practices and each team member's deter- 

mination to achieve his or her goals that lead 
tliem to victory. Motivation was the key to each 
team's success in breaking all the boundaries 
they had to overcome on their road to success. 
This year's sports teams had some of the 
best action, whether it was busting out new 
jump records in Water-skiing, making a break 
for the goal in Soccer, stealing a base in Base- 
ball, or spiking it to the other opponent in 'Vol- 
leyball. There was definitely exciting action 
going on out there. Some of the Triton teams, 
broke all the boimdaries with especially strong 
teams. To name a few of these, 'Women's Soc- 

cer, 'Women's Basketball, and Men's BasketbaU 
had outstanding seasons. 

The introduction and continuation of 
many club sports on campus constantly strove 
to diversify- the athletic coverage at Eckerd Col- 
lege. Though not as well recognized as Eckerd's 
Division II teams, club sports are an important 
asset to the students at Eckerd. Many of these 
teams were just breaking into the competative 
relm this year and had to overcome the bound- 
aries they faced. Who knows, it could be a mat- 
ter of time before aU boundaries are broken for 
these teams and they become full fledged ath- 
letic league teams. Some of these club sport 
teams are Men's Cross-Country, Men's and 
Women's Rugby, and Women's Golf. Each of 
these teams grew and improved tremendously 
tliis year 

On the playing field, Eckerd's opposition 
grew, with a number of new competing teams 
entering the Division. There were more schools 
to compete with for championships, and more 
old rivals to prove the Triton teams' reckoning 
power More importantly, the Triton's spirit of 
good sportsmanship and courtesy was top com- 
pared to other schools. "While not all the teams 
made their wins on the field, each had its own 
accomplislaments and worked hard at break- 
ing all the boundaries they faced. Atliletics at 
Eckerd have come a long way and continue to 
grow and flourish as they move into the dawn- 
ing of a new era.

The Eckerd College Water-ski 
team has grown with great success. 
This year's team was 
very talented and 
hard working, 
not only on 
the water but 
off as well. 
They were 
kept busy re- 
pairing and 
beautifying their 
site, while still attending 
grueling practices. The team 
worked hard toward its goals 
which resulted in many good 
scores in tournaments. Although 
the minor set back of Hurricane 
Georges dampened the team's 
strive toward nationals by causing 
the cancellation of a major tourna- 
ment, it did not stop the team's de- 
termination to perform its best and 
reach for new heights. The team 
worked not only to improve their 
skiing techniques, but also on 
jirojects to improve their off cam- 
pus practice site. Part of these im- 
provements were a newly built, a possible tournament 
ready site, and a recruit-a-thon for 
next year's ski team, and improve- 
ment of the team's success as a 
whole. Coach Dave DeMik enthu- 
siastically stated, ■■'We have had an 
exciting Triton ,Ski team this year 
with super-star talent from around 
the globe that have done fantastic 
maneuvers on the lake (which in-

were Steve Finger, a senior and tal-

the team, and Anna Engholm, the 
women's team captain, who helped 
the team tremendously with her 
talents, having finished third in Eu- 
ropean Nationals. The water-ski 
team placed third in the southern 
conference during first semester 
In the second semester, the ski 
team sent several talented skiers to 
the All-Stars Tournament where 
they competed with other very tal- 
ented skiers like themselves for 
new records and personal bests. 
This year's water-ski team was ob- 
viously breaking boundaries and 
making waves to become the best.

The Eckerd College Women s 
Soccer Team showed outstanding 
performance this season. The team 
is part of the NCAA Division II Sun- 
shine Conference, which includes 
many tough competitors. This 
year's team showed much improve- 
ment over last season's. The head 
coach for the lady Tritons is Siggi 
Nagele who has coached the team 
for several years. His support staff 

includes two assistant coaches, 
Calvin Jones and Andy Ghoulish, 
as well as, athletic trainer, Nicole 
Brownwell. Although still rela- 
tively young, the team showed in- 
tense dedication this year, working 
hard to improve their overall 
record. The 1998 key returning 
players were Jill Cocca, Theresa 
Nietfeld, Courtney Regnery, Karah 
Smith, andAmy Thompson. Despite

When competing in a realm such 
as the Tritons, wins are quite diffi-

SoccerTeam showed amazing skill 
this season. The Tritons emerged 
as the victors in many of theii 
games. Two matches were played 
against Florida Southern College 
and theTritons defeated them both 
times with deafening victories ol 
7-1 and 8-0. Eckerd women also 
took the opportunity for a shutout 
against the College of St. Francis 
with an 8-0 win. Intense dedica- 
tion and strong ability per- 
mitted the Lady Tri- 
tons to emerge vic- 
torious in 10 out 
of the 16 games 
that they played 
throughout the 
season, pulling out 
of a reign of defeat.

The Men's Soccer Team en- 
tered this year with a winning atti- 
tude, after last season, which was 
filled with unexpected injuries. 
The fourteen new players had 
high hopes of improving 
over last year's 3-15 
season. The team 
started out 2-1 
seemingly on the 
right track. Unfor- 
tunately, as with last 
season, a few serious 
injuries forced a number 
of key players to sit on the side- 
lines, and as a result the team 
slumped into a loosing streak. The 
men attempted to turn their luck 
around by trying a number of dif- 
ferent starting line-ups, but nothing 
seemed to work. 

Only seven old faces re- 
turned to the team from last year, 
making this season one of rebuild- 
ing. The corner stone of the re- 
building was centered mostly 
around Josh Holfeltz, a returning 
sophomore center-midfielder, and 
Ryan Hyypio who anchored the de- 
fense as the sweeper. Holfeltz tried 
to put up the same performance 
that earned him an All-Conference 
honorable mention last year. Un- 
fortunately he was hampered by 
bone spurs in his foot. He willingly 
played through the pain until he 
was forced by his doctors to hang 
up his cleats, and sit out for the re- 
mainder of the season. 

The team continues to feel 
that there will most definitely be 
improvement in future years. The 
dismal results of this season both- 
ered the players such that they pre- 
ferred not to comment on it, but 
many of them refer to it as one of

The Eckerd College 
Women's Volleyball 
Team spent an en- 
tire season break- 
ing boundaries 
in order to create 
a winning season. 
A young team, a 
new coach, a rigor- 
ous conditioning sched- 
ule, and a tough line-up of matches 
led the team to strive for excel- 
lence in practice and performance. 

Led by senior captains Jenni- 
fer Hoft and Dana Bibbs, and jun- 
ior, Sandra Campanella, they wel- 
comed six new first-year players 
onto their roster. Sandra 
Campanella commented, "We all 
get along well, although we are still 
learning to play together as a team. " 
Head Coach Hollie Miller and As- 
sistant Coach Brian Heath help the 
team to discover the means of ef- 
fective teamwork and togetherness 
on the court. Junior Dustin Beres 
also offers perspective and coach- 
ing as a team a.ssistant. 

The team's first match of the 
year, against opponent Embry- 
Riddle, was a disappointment, but 

they acknowledged the fact that 
more practice ;ind training together 
were the keys to achieving success. 
Their plan proved effective for the 
rest of the .season. 

Junior Sarah Phillips at- 
tributes the success of the team to 
its spirit and enjoyment of what 
they do. She says, "We have a really 
great young team and I enjoy play- 
ing volleyball with them! " 

"Our team improved a lot this year because 
our new coach helped bring out the best in 
us, " says Jen Emerson, who dives for the

In 1989, the Eckerd CoUege 
Men's Volleyball Program was ini- 
l:iated with 13 players and an $800 
budget from ECOS. A decade later, 
the team boasts NationalTitles and 
has proven that success is due to 
hard work, patience and intense 

Of course, the road to suc- 
cess has been paved with 
speedbumps, and the team has had 
its fair share of obstacles to over- 
come in recent years. A winning 
record, a fifth place linking in Na- 
tional rosters, and seven All- Ameri- 
can players since 199.3 are true tes- 
taments to the reahty that hard 
work pays off. The men practiced 
up to five days a week in the pre- 
season, including morning condi- 
tioning workouts. This year alone, 
the team reveled in a win at the 
Florida State Invitational, three 
players named to All-Conference 
teams, and four players named to 
All-Southern teams. 

It is apparent that the Men's 
■Volleyball program has broken 
many important boundaries. The 
most important of these, as identi- 
fied by Coach A.J. Jospeh, has been 
the abUity to extend a desired op- 
portunity to students on campus. 
He commented that the program 
has "found a way to offer the pur- 
suits that our students want 
without having to cut into 
the athletic budget." 
For this blessing he 
thanks the student 
government, the sup- 
porters of the college, 
and most of all, the 
guys who dedicate them- 
selves to the Eckerd College 
Men's Volleyball Team.

The Eckerd College Women's 
Tennis Team put forward a valiant 
effort this year considering the 
many obstacles they were up 
against. This year's team consisted 
of eight girls, most of whom were 
returns. Coming off a great season 
last year - in wliich the team was 
ranked «20 in the entire nation and 
player Alison Knefely was ranked 
56 overall - the team tried really 

hard to match the previous year's 
performance. The ladies invested 
many hours in training (2 hours per 
day, sis days per week) but this year 
seemed plagued by an array of ill- 
nesses ranging from pneumonia to 
allergic reactions and back prob- 
lems. This hindered many of the 
top players from performing to the 
best of their abilirs' and sometimes, 
from participating in matches alto- 

gether In all, the team had 25 date; 
for matches plus the Sunshine Statt 
Conference Tournament. Unfortu 
nately, for 11 of these 25 matche; 
the team's *2 player, Kris Stocker 
was out with a serious illness re 
suiting in a one spot move up oi 
all the team's players. The team alsc 
had an exceptionally tough sched 
ule this year, being grouped anc 
therefore matched up against some 
of the highest ranking teams in th«

Being on the Eckerd 
College tennis team 
is no easy task.Yes, 
there is more to 
it than just hit- 
ting a yellow 
ball over the net 
into a geometri- 
cally designed 
field. One must avoid 
being swept off the court 
by the often present wind, try not 
to become distracted by the soft- 
balls which without warning soar 
into the court, andjast but not least, 
one must overcome physical and 
mental anguish to perform to the 
best of one's abilities. It is a matter 
of dedication. Spending as much 
time and energy on an activity as 
they do, you must think that they 
are crazy. In fact, they probably are. 
But, what makes the game so spe- 
cial, is that ultimately, it is a reflec- 
tion of Ufe.The team has ups and 
downs, victories, defeats, and a va-

riety of emotions. For the players, 
tennis serves the purpose of 
therapy, sometimes letting them get 
rid of energy and frustration and 
sometimes building it up. 

Although, Tennis is not ex- 
actly considered a team sport, these 
men were 8 individuals forming a 
uniry, a team.This team does not fit 
into the classical definition of ten- 
nis being an individualistic sport. 
Their category lies in a gray zone, 
meaning that the individual effort 
has to be given by each player in 
order to win a match against other 

In looking at the team's re- 
sults this season, it was a success. 
The team broke many boundaries 
and for the first time in years, they 
achieved a winning record. The 
team was nationally ranked in Di- 
vision II, reflecting their achieve- 
ment. Being number 29 in the na- 
tion was considered a great success 
for a small school like Eckerd. The 
team also fared well at Regionals. 

In retrospect, the season also 
had its downs. Close matches were 
lost, and outside pressures entered 
the court a few times which re- 
sulted in bad outcomes. However, 
the season was a success being 
nationally ranked, with room to 
improve. Again, tliis established a 
reputation for the Eckerd Men's 
Tennis Team, opposing teams will 
have to watch out in future years. 
Most importantly however, they 
were able to combine academic 
achievement with dedication and 
love for the game of tennis. The 
eight individuals and the coach 
formed a unity which created 
laughter and pain, arguments and 
agreements, and victories and de- 
feats. ""We now have memories, 
good or bad ones, which we will 
be able to share for the rest of our 
lives. AXTiat you should remember 
about us is that we are a team, an 
individualistic and culturally di- 
verse team, which is proud to be 
called the Eckerd CoUege Tennis

The Eckerd College Women's 
Basketball Team had a season that 
was filled with improvements. This 
season's team was young, with 
many of the players being fresh- 
men and sophomores. But even 
with the young talent, the team still 
sent a strong message whenever 
they played. 

The Triton's record this sea- 
son was 9 wins, 1 8 loses, which was 
a vast improvement over past 
years'. "The thing that hurt us the 
most was injuries, "said Coach Brian 
Shultes with five players falling to 
season-ending injuries. Even with 
all the injuries that occurred the 
Tritons were still able to double 
their conference win total. 

Among all the talent that is 
on the team as a whole, two star 
players were freshman Felecia 
Felton and sophomore Lori Glenn. 
Felton helped the team out with 
scoring and confidence, while 
Glenn brought out strength and 
competitiveness in the team. 

Next season looks promising 
for the Lady Tritons, as many of the 
girls will be returning. The experi- 
ence of the returning players 
coupled with the addition of new 
faces and new talent 
will undoubtedly 
show the Eck- 
erd College 
Women's Ba.s- 
ketball team 
to be mature 
and confident, 
ready to face 
next season's chal- 
lenges so that they can 
break even more boundaries.

This year, the Triton 
Men's Basketball 
Team won the 
and placed 
third in the 
Marriott Clas- 
sic Conference 
Under the direction 
of head coachTom Ryan 
the men ended the season with an 
overall record of 13-15 and an av- 
erage of 62 points per game. 

The men formed a good 
team, worked hard, and got along 
well. Most of the talent was played 
on defense and on shooting three 
ipointers.'Tiny's athletic dunks are 
fun to watch," says Jeff Kliewer 
The team still had difficulty reach- 
ing their potential, as they failed to 
push themselves to the limit. The 
Tritons had eight returning and five 
new players.The team consisted of 
a majority of juniors. The team will 
undoubtedly be more experienced 
next year because all the members 

will be returning. 

Senior Roger Leff led the 
team with an average of 1 2 points 
per game. The two other captains, 
juniors Jeff Kliewer and Davie GUI, 
helped bolster the team. The Tri- 
tons won against Florida Tech. "We 
hardly ever beat them, so it was 
hard doing that," commented 
sophomore Ewan Smith, "Next 

year and every time from now on 
we'll beat them." Coach Ryan stated 
that, "We're a defensive oriented 
team and the assists went down. 
We weren't happy with our perfor- 
mance, however, the outlook for 
next year is excellent. An older 
team will hopefully improve on the

The Eckerd College Triton 
Cheerleading Squad has been con- 
sistently breaking boundaries for 
the past several years. This year was 
no different for the squad, made up

Led by Captain Suzanne 
Knott and Co-Captain Jennifer

and student events. The Cheerlead- 
ers were ever-present at men's and

the hectic and often nerve-wracl 
ing schedule such devotion dc 
manded of the girls. Cheering fo 
both men's and women's game, 
meant a lot of doubleheaders, ni 
merous late night practices, an' 
many hours of hard work. 

Practicing four to five night 

a week during the basketball se; 

son insured that the squad wa 

ever-ready to cheer, dance, and pei 

form stunts. Sophomore cheei 

leader Jolie Santiago commente 

that, "the squad is constantly in 

proving. 'We work hard to promot 

enthusiasm among the fens and stx 

dents." That hard work has def 

nitely paid-off this year for th

group of twelve hot and sultr)' gals 
could be seen during halt" time at 

any given basketball game for they 
are the same group of girls other- 
wise known as the Dance Team. 
The team, founded two years ago 
by present captain.Trista Simpson 

(or'Bella Angel"), lends support to 
the Men's andWomen's Basketball 
Teams by cheering them on dur- 
ing games, rallying support from 
the crowd, providing entertain- 
ment during half time and even 
helping out behind the scenes. "We 
tr)' to help bring spirit to the | Eck-

never knew it would have such an

games and 
you'll feel the 
Eckerd Spirit, 
and rightly so. 
The girls see 
their role as fun, 
but they also put a lot 
of hard work and dedication 
into what they do. Team practice 
drills were usually done three to 
four times per week, in addition to 
aerobics and other strength train- 
ing exercises to keep in shape. 
Even outside of dance season 
(which coincides with the basket- 
ball season from November-Febru- 
ary), the girls liked to keep fit and 
practice a few dance moves. 

All in all, the team felt that 
this season was better than last and 
that they only have room for im- 
provement. Co-captain, Teresa 
Balog ("Charmed Angel") ex- 
pressed this sentiment in her own 
words... "Being a co-captain has 
made me even more dedicated, so 
next season I know we'll top our- 
selves just as we've done the year

"It's about commitment." 
This motto, the favorite saying out 
of the coaches' and players' mouths, 
epitomizes the attitude of the 199H- 
1999 Softball team. New head 
coachTobi GUbert, assistant coach 
Brian Mont, and the fourteen play- 
ers made a commitment to be the 
best team in the history 
of Eckerd College 
To achieve this. 

'A change in attitude was 

visibly obvious at Turley 

athletic complex." 

the team had 
to beat the 19 
victories that 
last year's 
team earned. 
This would not 

be a walk in the 

park for a team that 
boasted only one senior, one jun- 
ior, five sophomores, and seven 
freshmen. However,what the team 
lacked in experience, they certainly 
made up for in dedication and en- 
thusiasm. A change in attitude was 
visibly obvious at Turley athletic 
complex. The dugouts were 
painted bright red and black, the 
field was redone, new equipment 
was ordered, and the locker room 
was decorated. Even more impor- 
tant, the team put in countless 
hours practicing, conditioning, 
weight-training, and bonding, all 
out of love for the game. 

The Tritons were led by the 
lone senior and co-captain, Kate 
Turnbull. A solid second baseman, 
Kate batted .253 -with 1 1 RBI last 
year Fellow co-captain and the 
only junior, Kristina Morey brought 
a .247 batting average and leader- 
ship to the centerfield position. 
Sophomore pitcher/shortstop 
Cristy Broome also batted .247 last 
year and had a 6-5 record with a 
3.88 ERA on the mound. Other re- 
turnees included first baseman 
Jackie Toth, third baseman and co- 
captain Kristy Mattice, and 
rightfielder Camille Church. New- 
comers needed to step right in this

The Eckerd College Baseball 
Team had one of its best seasons 
this year. In many ways it was a lot 
better than any they have had in 
the past six years. Based on a rank- 
ing of all the college baseball teams 
in Florida, Eckerd almost made it 
into the top thirty. They greatly im- 
proved their play tliis year, attrib- 
uting it equally to good coaching 
and the dedication and hard work 
of the players. 

The competition was very 
tough this year, but the team gave 
it their all and ended the season 
fairly satisfied with their perfor- 
mance. "Tliis is a big group of guys," 
Coach Bill Matthews says, "There 
are a lot of seniors. I really hope 
they get to go to the 
Post-Season play 
because they 
have really 
hard to get 

of the top 
players that re 
ally helped the team 
out this year was Mark 

Coriaty. He had a .448, and he was 
ranked second in the conference. 
Tom DiCicco, who batted a .391 
and was ranked eighth, and Andre 
Buchanan with a . 375, and is 
ranked tenth in the conference, 
both contributed greatly to the 
team's success. Not to be over- 
looked are pitchers Tom Muldoon, 

Matt Juergens, Cory Carlson, and 
Jay Canestrari. "We have a lot of 
fun playing, and we all play very 
hard. And 1 want to thank Coach 
Matthews for putting up with all 
of us every day," Tom Muldoon says. 
These wonderful pitchers helped 
bring their team to many victories.

Breaking boundaries is noth- 
ing new for the Eckerd College 
Men's CiolfTeam. These men have 
had to break barriers from the time 
the team was first conceived. This 
year's experience proved to hold 
true to tradition, with the men fac- 
ing more barriers than ever. 

The CiolfTeam docs not have 
facilities on campus for practice, re- 

quiring them to travel great dis- 
tances to practice and compete. 
The team also finds itself chang- 
ing coaches' hands regularly. The 
men that choose to play this sport 
must do so with a dedication and 
drive (excuse the pun) uncom- 
mon in most sport's arenas. Prac- 
tice sessions take hours. Tourna- 
ments take davs or even entire 

weekends. And the players' commit- 
ment t)'pically lasts a life- 

Coach Pat 
Miller headed 
this year's 
team, which 
was led by 
graduating se- 
niors Kevin 
Collins and Mike 
Abrams. Rounding out the 
team were Michael Ciilbourne, Matt 
Denzer, Kirk Spielmaker, Kevin 
Oreal, Jonathan Davin, and Bicki 
Aliuja. Together these fine players 
struggled through a difficult season 
and managed to produce a respect- 
able record for the Eckerd College 
program. Coach Miller notes, "We 
did not have as much success as we 
had in previous years, but it cer- 
tainly wasn't because these guys 
didn't work hard. It just wasn't our 
year, but the young talent that we 
have signals definite promise for the

most impossible to define rugby. 

The only way to understand 
the player's motives for withstand- 
ing the pain and toll that the body 
goes through is to actually get out 
on the field and play. The benefits 
far ourweigh the negative factors. 

"You'U have forty friends in 
any citj' you go to, rugby players 
stick together and they take care 
of each other Once you really start 
playing it, you're either going to 
love playing it, or you're going to 
realize it's too violent for you. 
There's no give in this game," said 
Luke Geuraski. 

The friendships that develop 
between rugby players are differ- 
ent than those of many other 
sports. "For he today that sheds his 
blood with me today shall be my 
brother." William Shakespeare, 
HenryV . 

The majority of Eckerd rugby 
players didn't play the game, or 
know much about it, before they 
came to college. The closeness of 
the game's players is one of the 
more attractive qualities that it pos- 
sesses. For many of the players, it 
provides an outlet for the stress 
that college life creates. 

Rugby's roughness requires 
the players to be in the best physi- 
cal shape possible and demands in- 
tense dedication. Out of this dedi- 
cation comes skill, which leads to 
mutual respect and 
trust, which in 
turn leads to 

Once you really start 

aying it, you're either 

love playing it, 

I're going to realize

fulfilled the women team's per- 
sonal goal of ranking in the top per- 
centage of the runners. 

'We were a young team with 
little experience and we didn't 
know what to expect; therefore, 
our goal was to do the best we 
could in every race. "We had very

The Intramural Program 

was created to encourage people to 

participate in friendly competition, 

to have fun, and to be involved. 

-Reece Roberson 

The Eckerd 
College Intramu 
ral Sports Pro- 
Igram is run 
out of the 
Office of 
It is sup- 
ported by 
dedicated group 
of work study refer 
ees and student partici- 
pants. It offers fun and competi- 
tive sports events to the Eckerd 
College students, faculty, staff and 

The Intramural Sports pro- 
gram at Eckerd is powered prima- 
rily by students who wish to play 
sports in a relaxed and fun atmo- 
sphere. Students form teams of 
house members, complex resi- 
dents, and friends. In the fall, these 
students enjoy volleyball, soccer, 
and football. The spring semester 
brings students out for games of 
ultimate frisbee, street hockey, bas- 

ketball, and Softball. Each sport 
brings teams into fierce competi- 
tion for championship shirts and, 
even more importantly, ranking 
points that add up for a chance to 
win the David L, White Junior All 
Sports Trophy. 

Reece Roberson, Director of 
Campus Activities insists that the 
Intramural Program was created to 

"encourage people to participate 
in friendly competition, to have fun, 
and to be involved." In fact, some 
sports facilitate involvement for 
less-competitive players by offering 
both competitive and recreational 
brackets of competition. 

For whatever reasons stu- 
dents choose to participate in the 
Tntramural Sports Program, the pro- 

gram itself is breaking boundaries 
by involving increasingly larger 
numbers of participants, encourag- 
ing the development of more 
teams, and adding new sports to 
the Intramural roster every year In 
years to come, Intramural Sports 
may be the thing to watch, or to 
do, on a sunny Eckerd afternoon.

Diversity is most definately evident in the 
clubs at Eckerd. There is something for just 
about everyone. Even if there is not a club 
that appeals to you, there is always the oppor- 
tunity to create your own club. Many of this 
year's clubs faced boundaries though, the pri- 
mary one being difficulty chartering and get- 
ting their budgets approved. This was due to 
the change in hands of the power ofVice Presi- 

ECOS, Eckerd College's student govern- 
ment has faced a number of obstacles tlirough- 
out the years, but this year's was defmately one 

of the worst and it reflected on just about every 
ECOS sponsored club. Things did not really start 
to settle down imtil second semester The ECOS 
executive did a great job despite their difficul- 

Many clubs this year took on new shapes 
and forms, many remained the same but gained 
new membership, wliile many new clubs were 
started. The Catholic Club set new goals to 
achieve, renaming themselves Inch thus and at- 
tempting to plan more activities and get more 
students involved. ECTV was reborn after be- 
ing out of broadcast in 1997-98. Coffeehouse 

became an official club with events every other 
week. The Climbing Club was started by Kris 
Herrington and Karen Sell. Two new self de- 
fense clubs. Karate and Tae Kwan Do, were 
added to the roster by AlexTrouteaud and Louis 
Gavino. ODK started to flourish and recognize 
their true puq^osc on campus while aiming to 
improve their role. The Ballroom Dance Club 
became the Swing Club. 

Along with all these improvements and 
changes, each club faced boundaries of its own. 
Many clubs never met because of the confu- 
sion with chartering and the executive. The 
Triton had to deal with editorial difficulties. The 
Hullabaloo had to deal with publishing delays 
and restructuring. The Men's Rugby team 
struggled with a high turnover rate of players. 
The Solar Awareness Society struggled in a con- 
stant battle with administration to instigate 
their ideas. 

Each of these clubs is made possible by 
the dedication of one or two individuals who 
want to make a difference on campus and of- 
fer a diverse experience for their fellow stu- 
dents. Many students have taken the responsi- 
bility of diversifying themselves by leading oth- 
ers. Extracurriculars can take a lot of time and 
be very challenging, but at Eckerd, the student 
body has proven that they will do what it takes 
to keep themselves open mided and diverse. 

No matter what the obstacle, the clubs 
learned a lot this year to help them in years to 
come. The organizations at Eckerd College are 
constantly growing and evolving. It is only 
througli the strong dedication and leadership 
of many individuals that they can triumph and 
be successful.

Tliis year, the Eckerd College Organiza- 
tion of Students (ECOS) was headed by Presi- 
dent Dave Ward and included Jennifer 
Bokankowitz as Director of Finance and Tracy 
Whitley as Director of Academic Affairs. Hope 
Italiano initially held the office of Vice Presi- 
dent, but had to step down early in the year 
due to an outside career opportuniry. Elections 
were held to find a replacement. Patricia 
Manteiga was elected, after a tight runoff race, 
as the new Vice President. 

ECOS faced the huge task of rewriting 
their constitution this year. President Dave 
Ward led this movement, as it was his primary 
goal as head of ECOS. Changes were especially 
made in the areas concerning the guidelines 
for how students are appointed and elected 
to positions within the various student orga- 
nizations. To pass the new constitution, it had 
to be approved by 2/3 of LC, 3/4 of the stu- 
dent body, and finally, signed by President 
Armacost. Every student voted on the revised 
constitution at spring registration and it was

branches. Legislative council, headed by the

Vice President, is the biggest of these. Com- 
posed of the dorm presidents, it meets every 
Sunday. They act as a voting populous repre- 
senting the student body on various important 
issues. These include things such as, appoint- 
ments to leadership positions within clubs, 
budget defense allocations, and other issues 
concerning all Eckerd Students. 

LC is further divided into eight commit- 
tees. These include. Cafe and Pub. Campus 
Safety, Campus grounds/Environmental Con- 
cerns, Color Me Human, Dialogue Day,ASPEC, 
Residential Life, and the Leadership Confer- 
ence committee. They meet and plan activi- 
ties in their respective areas. Other divisions 
of ECOS include the finance, elections, and 
public relations committees. 

Without ECOS and its many committees, 
the clubs and activities on campus would not 
exist as students know them. ECOS provides 
the funding and guidelines for all student-run 
organizations on campus. ECOS holds all the 
student organizations together and allows for 
the rich college experience full of fun and 
opportunity that Eckerd students experience.

The Eckerd College media and entertain- 
ment clubs each have their benefits. These 
benefits are well deserved, considering all the 
hard work and dedication each requires. The 
five media organizations, are the Triton, Hulla- 
baloo, Media Photography, Eckerd College Re- 
view, and WECX. Palmetto Productions and 
Coffee House provide entertainment and other 
fun events on campus. 

When you work for the Triton, "You get 
to be the first to know what is going on around 
campus and you have the power to impact the 
campus as a whole," said Kristina Morey, Edi- 
tor-in Chief Other benefits include free con- 
cert and movie tickets, personal interviews 
with important people who come on campus, 
and VIP media passes to campus events. 

The Hullabaloo also has its benefits, such 
as free food, fun retreats, trips, and other ac- 
tivities. For the second time, they attended the 
annual National College Media Convention. It 
was held in Kansas City this year and was a 
great opportunity to learn about media, have 
fun, and bond as a staff They also were able to 
get to know the Triton staff a little better as 
they also attended this convention. 

EC Media Photography works with the 
Triton and Hullabaloo in getting photos for 
these student publications. Tliey take pictures 
of just about every event on campus. Sean 
Murphy finds the benefits to be usage of the 
media dark room, free film, and the experience 
he gets in ftirther developing his skills. 

The Eckerd College Review is the 
school's literary magazine that is published 
every spring. It includes poetry, fiction, and 

T ^rvfrr 

black and white photography done by stu- 
dents. Some of the benefits of EC Review are 
getting to correspond with well known poets 
and Pulitzer Prize winners, as well as attend- 
ing the National Poetry and Publishing Con- 
vention in Washington DC. 

WECX, Eckerd's one and only radio sta- 
tion, has its benefits too. Like the other media, 
experience is a big part of it. "Being able to 
focus on nothing but the music,"' is what DJ 
Tim Schwartz finds to be most beneficial. They 
also get free CDs as an added bonus. 

Palmetto Productions is responsible for 
just about all of the fun and exciting events 
held on campus such as concerts, parties, co- 
medians, and hypnotists. Working with the fa- 
mous people and groups that come on cam- 
pus is a big advantage of this group, along with 
attending a conference in which they get to 
check out all the newest college entertainers. 

Coffee House is a group that organizes 
what their name implies - coffee houses. For 
all those who do not know what this is, it is a 
combined effort of many talented individuals 
to entertain their fellow Eckerd classmates 
They were held this year in the pub every other 
week. A lot of fresh new talent was discov 
ered. These are most definitely beneficial to 
ail those who perform because it gives them a 
chance to make their talents known. 

All of these groups work hard to benefit 
the students. Each provides a service, be it 
through entertainment, playing music, writing 
news stories, taking photos, producing litera- 
ture, or a compiling book of memories.

y 6S ■/Activities 




Many groups on campus focus on the ere 
ative nature of acting, reenacting, and perform- 
ing. These include Theatre Troupe, Eckerd By 
Night Role-Playing, Dagorliir Improvisational 
Battle Games, Concert C:hoir,and the Bell Choir. 

The Theatre Troupe was one of the key 
players responsible for the various productions 
performed tliis year: "Twelfth Night", the col- 
lections of One-Act plays, and "Arabian Niglits". 
Many actors and actresses in these were able 
to experience what is known as "the jitters"- 
walking on stage for the first time and seeing 
hundreds of expectant faces staring back at 
them. Acting often is subject to some uncer- 
tainty. Wlien the lights short out or when you 
forget your next line, it can feel like an eter- 
nity, like you are going to die. At the end of a 
show, the performers are able to appreciate 
all of their hard work and dedication as they 
experience an "After Production Higli." Besides 
the actors, actresses, and directors, a lot of 
people go unnoticed. Since they are not on 
stage, the stage manager, the tech crew, the cos- 
tume designers, and the makeup artists fre- 
quently get overlooked. They are a very impor- 
tant part of the production, taking care of all 

tlie jobs that actors do not have time to do. 

Theatre is not the only place that Eckerd 
students perform and role-play Eckerd by 
Night and Dagorhir both focus on role-play- 
ing. Dagorliir reenacts battles, dances, music, 
crafts, and feasts of the medieval era. They can 
often be seen around campus with "swords " 
reenacting ancient battle games while dressed 
in medieval clothing. Eckerd by Night also 
focuses on reenactment.yet they focus on the 
enactment of various skits and plays at an im- 
provisational level. Tliis year they met regu- 
larly on Friday nights to partake in live-action 

For the musically inclined there are the 
Concert Choir, Sensations, and Bell Choir 
These organizations perform at various times 
throughout the year Annually they put on a 
Christmas concert as well as a Madrigal din- 
ner Outside of these two performances, they 
put on a number of concerts. This year they 
sang with the St. Pete Junior College and Xavier 
College at First Presbyterian Church in down- 
town St. Petersburg.They also performed with 
these colleges in New Orleans.

The academic, or "brain powered "clubs, 
provided an out of class forum for ideas and 
discussions about specific fields this year Clubs 
such as Delta Phi Alpha (German Society), 
Omicron Delta Kappa Oeadership), Psychology, 
Society for the Advancement of Management 
(SAM), Society of Physics Students, and Write 
On, focus on a particular area of study and al- 
low students a more relaxed environment for 
discussing and debating the issues witliin these 

Others, such as the Association of Com- 
puter Machinery (ACM) and Students in Free 
Enterprise (SIFE), not only share ideas on the 
issues within their fields, but also play a more 
involved role througli their active participation 
in projects. The members of ACM, in addition 
to discussing new computer technology infor- 
mation with each other, provided their knowl- 
edge and service to the Eckerd community. 
Members of the SIFE club broke the bound- 
aries of the Eckerd campus and tried their luck 

'M/£i£4X^ OJ 


in the real world of free enterprise. They took 
the knowledge gained in business courses and 
tested it in the real economy by doing research 
on companies, both locally and internationally, 
analyzing company data and even investing in 
stocks and bonds. 

In addition to all this, many of the clubs 
come with fringe benefits, such as serving as 
study groups and as means of general social- 
ization with friends and groups for extracur- 
ricular activities. This is due to the fact that 
many of the members of these clubs are stu- 
dents of the same majors, having same or simi- 
lar courses and sharing common interests. It 
is no wonder then that many of these groups 
are tight knit and the members are not only 
'group members' but also friends'. Senior, and 
member of the Bipedal Society, Michelle Pratt 
stated, 'It [the club], gives me a chance to ex- 
plore my major outside of the classroom while 
also doing stuff that's fun."

What drives the members of Eckerd 
CoUege's service clubs to give so much time 
and energy to the service of others? Well. 
the members of these clubs, including 
Intervarsity-, Peer Educators, People Wlio Are 
Concerned, Resist to Exist, and Circle K, sub- 
scribe to the philosophy that, "The best gift 
you can give yourself is giving to others." As 
one freshman, Bethany Elliott, said, "Help- 
ing others just makes me feel good about 
myself." While each ser\'ice club has its own 
unique focus, all of these clubs exist for one 
purpose: to better the world we live in. 

Intervarsity is composed of students 
who are eager to spread the word of God 
on campus. They hold prayer and discus- 
sion meetings to talk about their faith, and 
they are also there for people who just need 
a friend. Furthermore, Intervarsity helps 
raise money to donate to various causes, 
such as the Central America Mission group. 

Peer Educators focus on serving as roll 
models by encouraging responsible drinking. 
They also promote nutrition and help create 
healthy lifestyles and activities for students. 
They commit to building community through 
education and awareness. To do this they pro- 
vide educational programs, social events. 


and stress relief programs. 

A club with a very different focus is 
People Who Are Concerned. PWACs main 
goal is to bring concerts to the campus that 
will raise awareness and funds for different 
causes. The Tibet Freedom Concert is one 
example of these. 

Another club that concerns itself with 
raising Eckerd College students' awareness 
over important issues in today's society is Re- 
sist to Exist. Members of this club are con- 
cerned over the higli degree of student apa- 
thy about issues that need to be addressed, 
such as world poverty. Their main goal is to 
promote political awareness, critical thinking, 
and hopefully, the motivation to act. 

Eckerd College's Circle K is a branch of 
the national Kiwanas organization. Circle K 
members devote themselves to various service 
activities throughout the year, including Horses 
for the Handicapped and the Special Olympics. 

The service clubs at Eckerd College are 
an integral part of campus life. Not only do 
they provide students with the opportunity to 
make a difference on campus and their own 
lives, but they allow them to make a difference

Cii Itf^phfU! 

At Eckerd there are many different ways 
that students can get involved with the envi- 
ronment and society. Whether you want to 
build houses, paint houses, tend a garden, aes- 
thetically improve the campus, or become fa- 
miliar with the fungus Saccaromoyces 
cerevisiae (yeast), there is a club for you. 

This year the Earth Society participated 
in a canoe race that was held in mid October, 
and although they didn't win, they had a lot of 
fun doing it. The main goal of the Earth Soci- 
ety is to promote awareness of the environ- 
ment by educating people. The Earth Society 
is also associated with the Community Gar- 
den, which is located behind the pool. The 
garden is a place where students can learn 
about agriculture and team building by decid- 
ing how to run the garden. 

If painting and building houses is your 
thing, then Habitat for Humanity and Paint St. 
Pete proud are the things for you. Habitat for 
Humanity builds houses for the homeless and 
Paint St. Pete Proud paints them.This year the 
residents of Gandhi House, in a cooperative 
effort with 10 other Eckerd students, got up 
at 7:30 a.m. to paint houses. They included it 
as one of their dorm fimctions. They spent 
the day painting the house of a 90 year old 
woman who could not afford to have it done 
herself It was a great opportunity for Eckerd 

students to help out the community. 

Students who are interested in beautify- 
ing the campus can get involved with Green 
Rampage. This organization is dedicated to 
finding out where the existing plants are and 
where new ones are needed. Green Rampage 
only plants flora that are indigenous to the re- 
gion. Before they did this they had to map out 
where all the existing plants were. This in- 
cludes the dead ones which will be replaced 
by live ones. In the spring when all the new 
vegetation arrived they spent a day planting. 
Even President Armacost helped out. 

The Herpetological Society is dedicated 
to helping Eckerd students learn about the di- 
versity of Florida's fauna and its different habi- 
tats. The society uses research as a means of 
educating people. Another club that is active 
in raising awareness is the Bipedal Society. Tliis 
society is a place where anthropology majors 
and others who are interested can gain a 
plethora of knowledge about, and raise aware- 
ness of, anthropological issues. 

For those interested in becoming in- 
volved on campus there are many different 
ways to do this. The environment is a won- 
derful place and with the different habitats that 
exist in Florida, what better place could there 
be to try all these different activities?

The international clubs continued to 
make a strong impact on campus this year, rais- 
ing awareness and breaking language, cultural 
and other boundaries. This year there were an 
array of multicultural clubs on campus to 
choose from. They aimed to represent the var- 
ied interests of the student body. 

The African American Society functions 
as a cultural and social resource for African 
American students on campus. It also serves 
the broader purpose of heightening cultural 
awareness of students on campus with many 
planned events throughout the year. By ar- 
ranging and taking part in such events as Color 
Me Human, Festival of Cultures and others, the 
society is able to give other students a better 
understanding of the richness and vitality of 
the African American heritage. 

Circolo Italiano, Friends of Latin America 
and Spain, German Club, Le Groupe Francais, 
and the Turkish Students Association all served 
to enhance the awareness of their specific 
country's language, music, art, literature, food 
and cultures. They achieved this purpose 
through activities such as chat sessions (in 
English and in various other languages), par-

The Model UN, which is a simulation of 
the United Nations, explored the current po- 
litical, social, economic and human rights is- 
sues of international significance. The club 
helped raise awareness of these issues on cam- 
pus by hosting speakers, round table discus- 
sions, showing films and providing general in- 
formation on the UN, its puq^ose and its ac- 
tions. One of the highlights of the year for the 
group was their participation in the MUN Con- 
ference at Harvard, which was hosted in Feb- 
ruary. Through participation in tliis confer- 
ence, members of the Eckerd s MUN gained 
great insight into the workings of the real UN 
and were able to use this knowledge to fur- 
ther their awareness of these important issues. 

These clubs and societies helped make 
Eckerd a global campus. Considering the fact 
that Eckerd was recently recognized as the 
Liberal Arts College with the most percentage 
of international students, helped seal the fact 
that Eckerd College, its faculty and its student 
b(jdy are truly "breaking all boundaries."

For all those students who like to keep 
fit and active, there are organizations such as 
Ballet Club, Dance Troupe, Fitness Club,Jujitsu, 
Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Swing Club. Each is 
unique, but all have some similarities. 

Olof Soebech started the Ballet Club this 
year Coming from Iceland, she has a tremen- 
dous amount of skill and used it to teach oth- 
ers.The class had a small membership, but the 
size helped the dancers who greatly improved 
in skill under one-on-one instruction. 

The Dance Troupe, started byTaryn Sabia, 
was a first semester attempt at a competitive 
dance team.All members helped choreograph 
some dances, combining many diverse skills. 
The Dance Troupe performed a Christmas 
show at The Pier doing a number of routines 
from jazz to belly dancing. The Troupe never 
met second semester due to schedule conflicts. 

The Fitness Club, lead by Christi Loper, 
met several times a week, and sometimes mul- 
tiple times a day, in the fitness room. With 
weights and steppers, they worked up a sweat 
very quickly. From abs of steel to boot camp, 
in these highly attended sessions, students got 
down and dirty with their aerobic attitudes. 

For ultimate self-defense, and those with 

incredible pain thresholds, there is Jujitsu .This 
club teaches self-defense, self-control, and 
meditation. Combined, these allow the body 
to perform unthought of tasks. Belt tests were 
feared but held with high regards. Luke 
Cassingham lead and taught this club. 

Not as intense as Jujitsu, Karate serves 
the same purpose. The Karate Club focused 
more on working out though. Alex Trouteaud 
taught this class, being highly advanced at Ka- 
rate. The classes were well attended and the 
students dedicated. 

Tae Kwon Do was a tliird self-defense 
club this year. Luis Gavino was the Tao Kwon 
Do instructor. Each form of self-defense comes 
from a different part of the world. The sepa- 
rate exercises are unique to their own study, 
but similar in the mind and spirit. The differ- 
ences help students break boundaries by ex- 
ploring their separateness and similarities. 

JoeyTaraborelli led the Swing Club this 
year Highly attended early on, the attendance 
dropped as the year progressed. A professional 
instructor was hired for a couple of weeks, but 
a lack of men in the club made it difficult for 
willing women to learn the partner moves.

Some people are too scared to do what 
these people do, but these clubs are vers' popu- 
lar and the risk seems to draw them in. The 
Surfing Club makes several trips per year to 
the east coast. Even when storms roU through, 
and the rest of the campus is being evacuated 
and rushed to higher ground - they are out 
there. All this for the purpose of catching some 
better waves! During Hurricane Georges, they 
headed out to just north of Sunset Beach to 
catch the storm surge. "It was really clean, and 
the waves were head high," says Jonathan 
Birnbaum.The Surf Club usually goes to 
Sebastian InJet on the East Coast, but mainly 
they go where the waves are. They also do 
other things together besides surfing, such as, 
barbecues and typical club bonding activities. 
The club recently bought a plastic long board 
to assist those interested in learning the sport, 
and also in anticipation of the club's growth. 
The president of the club is Gregg Sakowicz. 
He keeps a laid back club with information 
sent via email, and few meetings. When there 
are waves, they just get up and go. 

The Skateboard Union is similar to the 
Surf Club in that they have a pretty relaxed 
attitude, and they love what they do. Nevin 
Marshall is the club's president, and he built a 
fun box this year with his own money just so 
there could be something to skate on.The box. 


made of metal coping on one side and a plas- 
tic hump on the other, can be found in the 
parking lot across from the basketball courts. 
One thing everyone knows about is the ramp 
by the pavilion. The club buUt that last year, 
but it is not in good condition due to the con- 
stant stress of the Florida weather. The school 
provided money for the ramp, but once that 
was done, there have not been enough fimds 
for anything new. Nevin says, "Anyone who 
skates is in. . . people just need to get out and 
hurt themselves. Go for it! " The club could 
always use more interested people. 

There are also other clubs that see push- 
ing the limits' as their theme and the Rock 
Climbing Club is definitely one of these. Being 
in Florida there is a lack of places to cUmb, but 
there is an indoor rock gym that the club went 
to on Fridays. It tests patience and the ability 
to find where to put your hands when you are 
a considerable heiglit above the ground. The 
dive club does about the same extreme in a 
different direction. Instead of climbing up, they 
dive down to the depths of the ocean. There 
are boating trips available, but because of the 
expense of the sport, there are not many trips, 
but like the rest of the extreme clubs, when 
they do go out they make the absolute best of

The Eckerd College Search and Rescue 
Team is the only organization of its kind in the 
United Sates. It provides students with expe- 
riences that they can only receive at Eckerd 
College. Students who choose to participate 
in this challenging co-curricular program re- 
ceive extensive Search and Rescue training as 
well as real world and leaderslaip experience. 

Unlike most other organizations and 
clubs at Eckerd, this one must be taken much 
more seriously because it deals with human 
life. Members usually join their freshman year 
Training begins during Autumn Term for all 
who are interested. The training is intense and 
followed up with tests of skill and nautical 
knowledge. These tests must be passed by at 
least 85% in order to make the team. This year 
20 new freshmen were invited to join EC-SAR 
giving the group a membership of 60. 

For the first year of membership, new 
team members meet regularly for training ses- 
sions, drills, lectures, and tests .Throughout their 
first semester they tag along and watch the 
more experienced members, by their second 
semester they get pagers and go on duty. Al- 
thougli they are not yet fuUy trained they are, 
at this point, at the skill level where older mem- 
bers can walk them through anything they are 
unfamiliar with. 

Upon completing their first years, mem- 

c/ie^Jn^ cajea, 
a^n/^ £^^ c/lu/ 

hers can choose wliich path they wish to take. 
These include medical, communications, and 
crew. Within each of these paths are a num- 
ber of different rankings and leadership posi- 
tions which can be obtained the longer a mem- 
ber stays with the team. There are also a num- 
ber of on land leadership positions such as, 
team leader, watch leader, and coordinator 

Once on a duty rotation, members work 
a 1/3 schedule with 24 hours on duty followed 
|->y two days off When on duty, team members 
respond to most types of maritime emergen- 
cies in the Tampa Bay area, including towing, 
boats nm aground, boat fires, medical, sinking 
vessels, refueling, and missing boats. Fifty per- 
cent of the calls are usually towing, but the 
more exciting calls do come in as well. EC- 
SAR works alongside the Coast Guard, Florida 
Marine Patrol, and other marine safety organi- 

This year EC-SAR broke many botmdaries. 
Their case load increased by fifty-one percent 
over previous years. The team was also one of 
the largest in the history of the program. Ac- 
cording to Search and Rescue Coordinator,Jen- 
nifer DeMik, "It was an amazing yean We chal- 
lenged the team with more operational respon- 
sibility during cases, and they did a great job! "

Wliat sets Eckerd College apart from simi- 
lar institutions across the country is not its ideal 
location on the Gulf of Mexico, the quality of 
the education, or even the stellar reputation of 
the professors. Instead, the most special aspect 
of Eckerd College is the diversity of its suident 
body. Within the gates of the lush campus, stu- 
dents from every social, etlinic, religious, cul- 
tural and economic background come together 
to learn, explore, interact, and break boundaries 

The diversity of Eckerd's students greatly 

contributes to the diversity of campus life. No 
single lifestyle is the norm here at Eckerd - in- 
stead, students lead many different lifestyles. 
Many students, for example, live in the typical 
dorm buildings on campus, where they experi- 
ence both the benefits, such as bonding with 
dormmates and memorable dorm activities, as 
well as the drawbacks of communal living, in- 
cluding shared bathrooms and computer labs 
and cafeteria food. Each student deals with com- 
munal living issues in his or her own distinct 
way For example, wliile some adapt to and even 

grow to enjoy the cafeteria food, others avoid 
the cafeteria at all costs. Instead, they use their 
meal cards to stock up on food from the Pub 
and then make their own meals in their own 
microwaves, on their own woks, or in dorm 

Another option for students is living in 
rooms in the Continuing Education 
Center(CEC). CEC rooms, wliich are often com- 
pared to simple hotel rooms, typically 
accomodate three students, usually foreign stu- 
dents or displaced students. While m;my CEC 
residents complain about their seclusion in the 
northeast corner of campus, they do beneift 
form an attached cafeteria and a greater sense 
of privacy. 

A step up from the CEC rooms are the 
Nu suites, complete with semi-kitchens, com- 
mon rooms, private bathrooms, washing ma- 
chines and dryers. These are the dorms in 
which a wide array of upperclassmen sleep, eat, 
study, and of course party. Within the walls of 
these suites, as well as within the dorms, pre- 
existing boundaries are broken as students of 
all different ages and backgrounds learn to live 
harmoniously with one another 

Some students, on the other hand, choose 
to forego on-campus housing altogether and 
live in off-campus apartments, condominiums, 
and townhouses, where privacy is easier to find. 
Other commuters prefer the privacy and com- 
forts, such as home-cooked meals, of living at 
home with their parents. Whatever lifestyle an 
Eckerd student chooses, she or he adds to the 
colorful and vibrant diversity unique to the 
Eckerd College campus.

The food at Eckerd College certainly 
leaves something to be desired - TASTE! The 
reputation of the food offered by Marriott is not 
very good. Many people have the smallest meal 
plan possible just so that they can avoid eating 
cafeteria food. Freshman Lonnie Ayer-Ziegler, 
who has the 2 1 standard meal plan hardly eats 
in the cafeteria and will only go there when 
her friends drag her there. Many students pre- 
fer alternatives to the cafeteria, such as eating 
meals from the pub, going to CEC, or ordering 
out whenever possible. While Marriott at- 
tempted to make the dining experience at Eck- 
erd more enjoyable by doing such things as 
themed meals, the majority of students still did 
not find the food to their liking. 

This year was the first year for new meal 
plan options. In previous years, the only choices 
were 10, 15, or 21 meals a week, of which only 
one meal could be used at a time. This meant 
that if students had more than one meal left on 
Sunday night they were out of luck with the 
extras. This year flex and constant meal plans 
were offered. According to junior, Kim Matot, 
"The new plan options are better [than the old] 
because there is more variet)'." With the con- 
stant meal plan you can use as many meals as 
you want during one meal period, which allows 
all those extra meals left over on Sunday night 
to be spent. The flex plan gives students a set 

dollar amount to spend in the pub for the se- 
mester, in addition to a set number of meals each 

Marriott is also in charge of the housekeep- 
ing on campus. The housekeepers work hard at 
keeping up with the dorms. The housekeepers 
and the student on campus are in agreement as 
to which complexes are the cleanest, and the 
winners are Alpha and Epsilon.When asked, the 
Alpha housekeeper, Pat, said that her favorite 
part of the job is the time that she is able to 
spend with the students. "Pat is a wonderftil, 
friendly person. Pat rocks," said Jennie Collier. 
Wliile the housekeepers are friendly for the most 
part, the quality of work they do is not always 
satisfactory. According to Nu resident, Nicole 
Alex, who had a number of belongings ruined, 
I'd rather clean the bathroom myself than have 
bleach water splashed all over and the dirt just 
being moved around." In the dorms it is a differ- 
ent story. While some of the mess is definitely 
the fault of the residents, many agree the bath- 
rooms could be cleaned with more frequency. 

Students are concerned over the amount 
of different campus services that are run by 
Marriott. How many more jobs will be taken 
over by them? As for the job that they are doing 
now the food is pretty bad and the housekeep- 
ing is mediocre at best.

A suq^rise for everyone at Eckerd as well as Pinellas County, a 
severe hurricane threatened to hit the West Coast of Florida this fall 
semester. For a week, the excitement buzzed around campus and ru- 
mors of evacuation spread like wild fire.As the weekend approached, so 
did the impending storm. Almost definite that Georges would hit the 
area, evacuation did take place. Classes ended at 5pm on Thursday, Sep- 
tember 24. vStudents rushed around campus attempting to find a place 
to go and securing all of their personal belongings. Windows were taped, 
furniture moved, carpets rolled up, and electronics unplugged, wrapped 
in plastic and placed in high places for fear of flooding. Buzzing like 
bees, everyone had a sense of excitement- and not only because of not 
having; this was actually happening! The Storm was coming! 

Students traveled all over. Some students went iiome, if thev lived 

anywhere close to school, and others traveled to higher, safer grounds: 
Orlando, Clearwater, West Palm, Pensacola, etc. Large groups stayed in 
small hotel rooms or piled into condos to party and celebrate the hurri- 
cane (and not having school for a couple of days). Many students went 
to Disney World, Sea World, and many other theme parks. Fortunately 
(but still a bit disappointingly) the storm never hit. There was rain for 
about a day and a nice storm surge for the surfers, an experience that 
does not come too often, especially on the west coast. There was no 
flooding though, so everything was spared. A lot of fun and excitement 
was had over the Iiurricane weekend.We are fortunate that there was no 
damage done, as was in the Keys. We were just luck)' enough t(3 experi- 
ence the fun of it without the disaster.

Every year the students of Eckerd College 
are encouraged to get out and do stuff with their 
dorms. To promote this, each dorm is allocated 
funds for dorm activities to be used however 
the residents desire. So what kind of creative 
activities did Eckerd s residential students come 
up with to do during the 1998-99 school year? 
A better question is what didn't the Eckerd Col- 
lege students do this year? Dorm life was high- 
lighted by a number of different activities .These 
activities varied with the personality of each 
dorm.They ranged from the usual cookouts and 
picnics to the extraordinary camping trips and 
other off campus excursions. 

The dorms got really creative with their 
activities. Some dorms opted to play in house 
games such as croquet and twister. Some dorms 
learned how to make pottery while others par- 
ticipated in religious discussions. A lot of the 
dorms threw pizza parties and watched mov- 
ies together Other dorms bought stuff for the 
members of their house to use. For instance, 
Ibsen bought an inflatable pool, and Morris 
bouglit a video game system. Overall, the most 
popular dorm activity, by far, was just lying 
around hanging out with each other and hav- 
ing a great time. 

There were those dorms that went all out 
to participate in the biggest and baddest activi- 



ties. Dorms went out to dinner at places like 
the Olive Garden and IHOP.A few dorms went 
to bowling alleys. Dalton and Prasch houses 
boasted trips to Busch Gardens. Knox house 
took a little trip to Chuckle Cheese's. James 
house ventured to see Shakespeare in the Park. 
The residents of Darwin House went camping 
on Hook Island. Copley house went to the Ice 
Palace to see the Tampa Bay Lightning play 

A lot of the dorms also did activities that 
went along with the holidays. For Halloween 
there were pumpkin carving contests and scary 
movie nights. Around Christmas time, dorms 
threw parties. Newton House even planned a 
gift exchange to go along with their festivities. 
For Easter, the dorms decorated eggs with 
Ghandi house sporting an Easter egg hunt. 

For the most part, a good majority of the 
people in a given dorm participated freely in 
these activities and had a great time doing them. 
Most residents would agree that the activities 
they did throughout the year brought the dorm 
closer together. Whether dorms went on wild 
and crazy camping trips or whether they just 
stayed inside and hung out, most would agree 
that the Eckerd College students made the most 
of their activities in dorm life.

Eckerd students watched the campus change in many ways this 
year. The most notable of these has been the building of the new apart- 
ment building on what used to be the Zeta sand courts. Last year, Dean 
Miller and Kathryn Philliben decided to build a new dorm to encourage 
upperclassmen to stay on campus rather than living in apartments off- 

After consulting several architectural companies, a local architect 
drew the initial sketch that began the building process .This $59 million 
addition will give more variety to housing at Eckerd.The plan is to have 
three floors with eleven apartments on each floor.Three types of apart- 
ments are offered: a five-person suite with two double rooms and a single 
room, a four-person suite with four single rooms, and a four-person suite 
with two double rooms. All of the apartments come with a kitchen, liv- 
ing room and bathrooms. In addition, each room has a balcony that faces 
the waterThe builders are confident the apartments will be completed 
by September when students return. 

Preference at Room Draw was given to seniors first and then jun- 
iors. The new apartments will be the most expensive on campus, but 
residents will not be required to be on a meal plan due to the full kitchen 
provided. There will be three Resident Advisors assigned to the building 
to ensure maximum comfort for all the residents. 

Some residents were not as enthusiastic about the new dorm build- 
ing. Maureen McMahon, a senior in Berkeley house, complained about 
the noise level of the construction, including the daily 6:30 a.m. wake- 
up call of saws, drills, loud music and conversation. She, along with fel- 
low residents, found it difficult to suidy for finals during the construc- 
tion and disliked some of the workers' rude comments and language. 

Eventually however, most people, particularly the underclassmen, 
will probably be pleased with the benefits the new apartments promise 
to bring. From the perspective of the housing staff, this new dorm is the 
first in a series of improvements for housing at Eckerd.

Security and Residential Life are two de- 
partments that deal directly with life on cam- 
pus. For those students that lock themselves out 
of their rooms or for disputes among residents, 
RAs, CCs, Myles, Cesarz, and Campus Security 
step in to assure maximum safety and to help 
make living in a dorm more comfortable. They 
are also responsible for enforcing the rules, of- 
ten giving them a bad reputation. 

One of the major concerns of students this 
year with security was the overabundance of 
ticketing that occurred According to Dan Barto, 
Director of Campus Safety, the number of tick- 
ets issued this year was relatively the same as 
previous years; although, more were given, for 
moving violations. Freshman Thomas Lendrihas 
said that while the tickets he received were jus- 
tified because he was parked in an incorrect 
space, he feels he should have been given a 
warning the first time. Fewer than ten percent 
of all tickets are appealed and relatively few are 
overturned. Most of the time the offender pays 
a small fee and moves on. 

As far as safety goes, Dan Barto feels con- 
fident that Eckerd College is safe. The majority 
of the reasons security is called include assist- 
ing students who are locked out of their rooms, 
letting students into buildings, or helping them 
with car trouble. Barto adds, however, that they 
do handle some cases such as vandalism, 
drunken vandalism, and room theft. He feels that 
the size of the security staff is appropriate for 
the number of students and acreage but would 
not mind having more coverage. 

Students express less satisfaction with the 
safety of the campus. Shannon Nulph expressed 

a complaint about the gatekeepers,"! called to 
tell them that my parents were coming and they 
said that they didn't stop parents, how do they 
know who the parents are? "Jessica James had 
a similar complaint, "It seems like the guys just 
wave you by, even if you don't have a sticker, 
you just wave and they let you go." 

Major complaints with Residential Life 
this year were coupled with those of security 
in enforcing rules, especially those pertaining 
to drinking and parties. This year's Residential 
Life staff seemed tougher than in the past. The 
RAs really tightened down on underage drink- 
ing, causing many disgruntled students. Many 
students questioned the difference between en- 
forcing the rules and being hypocritical or over 
doing it. Some students felt that a few of the 
RAs were hypocritical by enforcing the rules 
so strongly when they knew that the RAs them- 
selves still partied sometimes too. 

"When it comes down to it, there are rules 
to be enforced and until recently not much has 
been done about it. Finding a balance where 
rules can be enforced as a means of minimizing 
destructive and disruptive behavior without hin- 
dering the ability of students to kick back and 
relax with friends occationally still seems to be 
the primary challenge. 

While Residential Life and Security have 
upset a lot of students this year, they have 
worked hard to make improvements. Students 
can simply hope that a middle ground will be 
reached eventually between themselves and 
those in authority without destroying the na- 
ture of the college experience.

There are two different styles of life cho- 
sen by Eckerd students, living on campus or off. 
Most who have decided to live off campus and 
brave the commute every time they have class 
or need to be on campus, have chosen to live 
fairly close to the campus to make the trip less 
of a hassle. Some of the farther commuters 
come approximately twenty miles from 
Bradenton and Oldsmar. 

Living off campus has its ups and downs. 
The part of living off campus that students seem 
to like the best is they do not have to deal with 
dorm life. That is, they don't have the distrac- 
tions that come with communal living areas, 
such as noise or distracting visitors. Living off 
campus gives students their own personal space 
and privacy. Living off campus also means that 
one does not have to be on the meal plan. The 
primary down side of living off campus is that 
students have to drive to school. 

Many of the commuter students only 
come on campus to go to their classes and don't 
spend much time hanging out. Others are more 
involved in campus life and find themselves 
here often. Some come for the parties too, but 
they don't, for the most part, get the daily inter- 
action that occurs in the dorms. 

"It's not harder to make friends, it's harder 
to know lots of people like the people who live 
on campus do," Danielle Hermian said when 
responding to what it is like to try and meet 
people when you live off campus. Other people 
said that the only people they really knew were 
people from their classes or other activities that 
they were involved with. 

Commuting is the other option to living 
on campus, but to break the boundaries that 
exist between on and off campus students, an 
effort needs to be made by each group to inter- 
act at another level.

As far as smaller pets go, they are allowed 
in all dorms, so long as they fit into a cage or

of animals students have kept as pets include: 
small birds, fish, small rodents, nonpoisonous

Eckerd College is one of very few schools 
"Ihat allow students to have pets on campus. Tliis

s to protect the rights of pet owners and the

a problem to others on campus. If problems 
do occur, then the Pet Council may be called 
upon to solve them. These problems include 
situations of neglect, abuse, noise, biting, and 
destructive behavior 

Although Eckerd allows a variety of pets 
to stay on campus, a pet's adaptive behavior is 
exclusive to the pet's condition and personal- 
ity. For this reason, it is understandable that a 
dog or a cat must be at least one year of age. 
Smaller rodents or even reptiles may be the 
better choice for a campus pet, especially for 
those buisier students who do not have to time 
to give to a larger animal.

A St. Pete officer confers witJi Tim Sduvartz about tlie Oberg incident. Tlie cause of the fire 

IS still a mi/stery, but there was some speculation ttmt it was caused by something as simple 

as a cigarette butt in the bathroom which was fill of dn/ palm frauds, mattresses and lumber 

for U'hat was to be the Oberg Haunted House, plioto by Kris Herring ton 

Oberg house residents were dispersed across campus into any ami ei'ery available room. 
Many -were put up in the Ramada Inn and many stai/ed with friends. Tlie dorm was neivr 
reopened after the treacherous fire in October. It will be reopen next year with a new format 
of rooms Jo;nisliiirs and suites upstairs, photo by Michelle .Allen 


As Oberg residents pondered the possibilities for creating a safer 
haunted house on Halloween's Eve, a horrific, yet ironic, turn of events 
spoiled the plans as well as the house. At approximately 9:00 p.m. on 
October 30, a spontaneous fire broke out in the downstairs bathroom of 
Oberg House while the residents were meeting in the complex lounge 
to discuss safety issues related to the haunted house construction. The 
rapid spread of the fire was attributed to the building materials used in 
the creation of the haunted house including palm fronds, lumber, paper, 
and Spanish moss. 

Luckily, the injuries sustained were minimal. Smoke inhalation 
accounted for three student injuries and one female student received 
stitches in her leg after attempting to rescue a cat trapped inside a room. 
However, a cat, a rat, and several amphibians lost their lives. Damage to 
the house was contained to the common areas of the bathrooms, lounges, 
and stairwells. Some personal possessions were lost in the fire, but resi- 
dents recount that the most obvious indicator of the fire was the smell 
of smoke that seemed permanently adhered to their belongings. 

Not only did the fire cause serious structural damage to the house 
and uncountable losses of personal property, but it left 32 students dis- 
placed and no room on campus to accommodate them. The "Oberg 
refugees "as these students became known, were temporarily placed in 
rooms at the Ramada Inn on 34th Street. 

The intense consequences of the fire included personal, structural, 
and community damages. Halloween of 1998 will always be remem- 
bered as the year that the Haunted House became no house at all.

\manda Planson, Tom Muldoon, Corey Carlson, and 
'endra Brown join in the fun one Saturday night. Nu, 
nown by all students as a party dorm, attracted many 
tudents, from every class, every Friday and Saturday night, 
koto by Jessica Green 




The students living in Nu this year discov- 
ered the many advantages and disadvantages of 
having individual bathrooms. Wliile being able 
to take a shower or bath in your own personal 
batliroom is unbeatable; getting facilities to send 
someone to clean it is another story. The maid 
at Nu has keys to all the suites and rooms so 
she can clean and restock toilet paper This dif- 
fers from the other dorms in which there are 
central bathrooms and the maids have no ac- 
cess to student rooms. Despite her access, the 
Nu maid seemed to rarely clean, and when she 
did, she did not do a very effective job. Toilet 
paper was also a scarce commodity; many resi- 
dents had to invest in their own stocks out of 

Although she did an awful job cleaning 
the bathrooms, Toni Barbari really cleaned up 
monetarily. Many of the residents started to 
notice money and other belongings missing 
from their rooms and suites and approached 
Resident Advisor, Carrie Welch. According to 
Welch, many of the students were hesitant to 
accuse the maid, but they had a pretty good 
feeling that she had been stealing. Two Nu 1 3 
residents approached security on Friday, Octo- 
ber 23"' as did Welch. Upon speaking to Welch, 
head of security, Dan Barto, was made aware of 
many such reports of theft around Nu. Eight of 

the 16 suites at Nu filed reports of theft. There 
were a few non-monetary items reported miss- 
ing, but according to Barto, "the suspect ap- 
peared to just go for money." It was approxi- 
mated that she stole around $200 in cash. 

With the help of Barto, Welch's suite - Nu 
1 - was able to set Barbari up and film her steal- 
ing money from them on Tuesday, October 28th. 
Barbari was escorted to the security office and 
questioned by Barto. She denied everything and 
the police were caUed. Upon reviewing the tape 
the St. Petersburg police arrested Barbari. She 
was put in jail for petty theft. 

In the time period after Barbari's dismissal, 
residents suffered even more whUe lacking any 
type of maid. Other housekeepers from around 
campus helped out a litde but it took a number 
of weeks before a permanent replacement was 
found. Nu proved to be more expensive than 
just the additional increase in room price as 
compared to the dorms. Residents also paid 
the opportunity costs of having clean, stocked 
and secure bathrooms. Despite these additional 
expenses, according to Welch, "the residents at 
Nu were awesome and the people here handled 
the situation with maturity." She also felt that 
security did a great job following through on 
the case and not just brushing it under the table.

College costs a lot of money. To pay for such higher education and 
to help with living expenses, many students have jobs. Most of these work- 
ing students have work study which provides a small monthly income. 
Work study positions are assigned by Career Services and they range from 
lifeguarding to working for the various offices on campus.Work study is 
not available to all students.To be eligible, students must apply and prove 
some degree of financial need. One good aspect of woric study is the 
potential to get a job that has something to do with your interests, or 
major. Such opportunities especially exist with the Triton, the Hullabaloo, 
and the Health Center Work stud>' only pays minimum wage though, so 

the checks add up 

To offset this 
problem, many stu- 
dents work off cam- 
pus. Some students 
have both work study 
and off campus jobs, 
but the majority of stu- 
dents only have one of 
the two. Some of the 
more popular jobs in

the local St. Petersburg 
area are working in restau- 
rants or the mall. Many stu- 
dents work at Isla Del Sol 
and along the beach. 

There are also oppor- 
tunities to work on campus 
without qualifying for work study. 
On campus jobs can be obtained in places such 
as the bookstore and the pub,which are not con- 
nected with the school's work scholar program. 

There are many opportunities at Eckerd 
and in the vicinity outside the walls of campus 
as well. Several students take advantage of the 
school's location and its work study program. 
While balancing a job on top of a heavy course 
load and a number of other on campus activi- 
ties is sometimes difficult, being a college stu- 
dent makes one aware of how much every dol- 
lar counts.

pEckerd was demanding, but the fact that I 
;work among students is what made my job 
'so rewarding." 

"Working off campus 
at Durango's made 
my life very busy. It 
forces you to manage 
your time and keeps 
you running, espe- 
cially with a major in 
Marine Science." 
-Sara Campbell

I Many people say that Eckerd suidents are 

^ shut out from the rest of the world by living on 
"I campus. On the weekends however, it's a dif- 
i^ ferent story for many students Students ven- 
^. ture to the outside world and break the bound- 
I aries formed by Eckerd's sheltered cairipus. Ac- 
%. ^ tivities vary between crowds, but one thing re- 
mains the same— getting out is a must in order 
to survive! 

Jay Babcock-"I go to the pool hall." 
Jessica Ciccio- "I like to go to the beach 
or anywhere off campus where I can relax." 

Dustin Beres-'I usually play beach volley- 
ball at Bongo's." 

Cristiane De Almeida -"I go toYbor City, 
to Empire, or the beach." 

Mark Swiehart- "What do I like to do off 
campus? Well,! go toYbor,Bennigan's, off-cam- 
pus parties, or anywhere with food." 

Anonymous- "Strip clubs and bars!" 
Jessie James- "Off campus? Where is that?" 
Obviously, most Eckerd students look to the beach or 
Ybor City to photo b y Trida SMeig 
relax, have fun, 
and get away from the 
stresses of class. How- 
ever, being a multicul- 
tural college with stu- 
dents from around the 
world, there are plenty 
of people who enjoy 
slightly more educa- 
tional activities. To sat- 
isfy this himger, the St. 
Petersburg area offers 
numerous choices; the 
Florida International 
Museum, the Florida 

Holocaust Museum, the Salvador Dali Museum, 
Lowery Park Zoo, and the Florida Aquarium, to 
name a few. 

One of Eckerd's main goals is for all stu- 
dents to help others through volunteering in 
the community. For those who feel the need to 
make their mark in the St. Petersburg commu- 
nity, there are many service opportunities. Stu- 
dents can volunteer in soup kitchens, do Paint 
St. Pete Proud, help with beach cleanups, and 
work at the Special Olympics. The opportuni- 
ties are endless as are the needs. By getting 
off campus to have fun, experience the cul- 
ture, or help others, students break the 
boundaries of campus and delve into the 
world outside the walls of "'Camp Eckerd".

With a fleeting moment the styles and 
trends of this year appeared and flew by like a 
hurricane. Many influencing the students of 
Eckerd College. The fashion styles changed, and 
shoes along with them. Sleeves shrunk to three- 
quarter length, skirts dropped to mid-knee, and 
pants shortened to the mid-shin. Shoe's stood 
six inches taller, and socks disappeared. Adidas 
and Puma were still going strong, while Tommy 
Hillfigger was replaced by Nautica. Butterflies 
swarmed like bees into every accessory and 
landed on anything that stood still. Dragonflies 
joined in the flock and became all the rage. 

Toys, like Furbie, learned how to talk and 
think for themselves. Teletubbies became the 
new icon for club kids. The Spice Girls broke 
up and left millions of girls mourning. N'Sync 
joined the Backstreet Boys in their role as teen 
heartthrobs. Picky style haircuts accentuated 
the new lengths in fashion, keeping with the 
shrinking trend. 

The new VW Bugs were sleeker and smaller than ever. Pepsi One 
became the new drink of choice.The New Balance tennis shoes replaced 
Nike. The platform shoes reach a new height and crossed the bound- 
aries into the flip-flop and sport shoe area. Stretch pants flared out 
whereas blue jeans became more relaxed and form fitting. A whole new 
shade of gray hit the stores and covered everything in a wave of laven- 
der-mist. Pin stripes came back with vengeance, recalling the forties era. 

Swing dancing became the new past time for many club-lovers. 
Ska music hit the air 
waves w^ith its 
twenty's influence. 
The eighties also influ- 
enced music and 
clothing. All of the 
new trends and fads 
that erupted this year 
will be hard to top in 
the new millennium.

Within the boundaries of 
Eckerd College, the'real world " 
often seems far, far away. To 
most students, a life beyond 
classes, exams, papers, parties, pro- 
fessors, sports, activities, communal 
living, cafeteria food, and dependency 
on parents is in the distant future. But 
for the graduating class of 1 999, the time 
has come to move on to bigger, and hojie- 
fully better things. On May 21. Eckerd Col- 
lege seniors said good-bye to college life and 
hello to the lives they have been jireparing for 
during the last four years. Each senior has his 
or her own individual dreams, plans and goals 
but one thing is certain: e\ery Eckerd senior 
will be using all that she or he has learned to 
break boundaries. 

Some students are seeking to break edu- 
cational and generational boundaries. For ex- 
ample, Kate Turnbull, a Marine Science major 
from Troy, Ohio, is excited, and, of course, a bit 
nervous, about the teaching job she has landed 
at Academy Prep, a charter school that has bro- 
ken plenty of boundaries of its own and is imple- 
menting innovative techniques like reduced 
class sizes and increased student-teacher inter- 
action. "I just can't wait to get out and do some- 
thing," remarked Kate, who looks forward to 
making a difference in the lives of chUdren. She 
also will be stretching the boundary of her own 
patience, as her students will be middle-school- 
aged boys. 

Kate is not alone in her desire to make an 
impact on the world. Eckerd seniors are headed 
in all directions, from law school to research 
laboratories to foreign countries to successful 
business firms. Good luck to the class of 1999, 
whose members will certainly be breaking 
plenty of boundaries in the years to come.

The 1998-99 school year presented 
Eckerd students with more boundaries than 
usual to be overcome. The many obstacles 
faced by students, faculty and staff were all 
used as a learning experience to help them 
overcome future boundaries. 

The year started out smoothly with 
the incoming freshmen breaking their way 
comfortably into the Eckerd community. 
They broke boundaries by being the big- 
gest entering freshman class yet. Autumn 
Term also gave all the new RAs, new Direc- 
tor and Assistant Director of campus Activi- 
ties, Reece Roberson and Patrick Kelly, and 
new Assistant Director of Residential Life, 
Cathy Cesarz a chance to break into their 
new positions. 

As the upperclassmen returned to 
campus they had no idea of all the new 
boundaries they would have to overcome 
this year Natural disasters were in abun- 
dance with the fire at Oberg and Hurricane 
Georges, both causing students to break out 
of their living boundaries and evacuate to 
safer grounds. 

Construction on campus posed many 
boundaries to all students. With the con- 

struction of a new dorm building new 
ground was broken, literally! It caused many 
complications for students in surrounding 
dorms thougli. The telephone lines, internet 
connections, and cable went out frequently 
in dorms such as Zeta and Nu. Some resi- 
dents of Delta got the beautiful view and 
early morning wake up calls by the work- 
ers who went about their business right 
outside their windows. 

Delta also had a water main break 
which flooded much of its court yard and 
led to a pit being dug outside of James 
house. They also had their roofs redone 
causing much distress among residents in 
the early hours of the morning. Construc- 
tion workers also managed to break a gas 
line in Epsilon causing the whole complex 
to be evacuated for several hours. The Zeta 
parking lot was partially closed off for a large 
part of the second semester creating seri- 
ous problems. Security finally allowed stu- 
dents to break onto the grass as an addi- 
tional place to park. 

Security and Residential Life placed 
many new restrictions on students this year 
Security issued more tickets this year than 

ever. The RAs also got a lot stricter Stu- 
dents were not even allowed to sit outside 
their dorms and drink from a cup on a week- 
end night without being accused of drink- 
ing alcohol. Leave it to Eckerd students to 
find ways to break those boundaries thougli, 
nothing could stop them from having a 
good time. 

New events on campus helped to fun- 
nel this desire to have a good time by bring- 
ing students together at events such as Ca- 
sino Night and the Lily Fair. These events 
provided alcohol free environments in 
which students could just kick back and 
have a good time. 

The addition of new clubs and new 
activities in old clubs also helped keep stu- 
dents involved and active in campus life. 
The many new fitness oriented clubs and 
improvements made in the fitness/aerobics 
club helped students keep in shape. Other 
new clubs provided outlets for students to 
share similar interests, ideas and beliefs. 

Overall it was a great year for expand- 
ing, broadening horizons and "Breaking All

Volume IV of the Eckerd College Hullabaloo was produced by the 98-99 Hullabaloo Staff. The 
Editor-in-Chief was in charge of the content and overall production of the book. The Hullabaloo was of- 
fered to students through fall registration for $30, through spring registration for $35, and at a final cost of 
$40. Sales were done through student and parent mailings, at all registrations, and through sales weeks in 
front of the mailboxes and in the cafeteria. 

The Hullabaloo was printed by Taylor Publishing Company of Dallas. Texas. The book is printed on 
80#E paper. The production run was 450 copies. It has two 4 color process flats and one flat of spot color 
The 144 page book and four page color tip-in were produced using a PowerPC Macintosh with Adobe 
PageMaker 6.5 and Photoshop 5.0. The total production cost of the book was approximately $17,000. A 
portion of the Hullabaloo budget allocated by ECOS of $18,000 was used for this, with the rest raised 
through book sales, ad sales, and car washes. 

The theme was selected by the staff with the idea submitted by Tracy-Ann Lamont. The cover was 
designed by Jenny Brummctt. The cover colors used are blue 9 and green 23. The type used for all body 
copy is Garamond Book 10 pt and for captions is Book Antiqua Italic 8 pt. All candid photographs were* 
taken by Hullabaloo or Triton staff members, with some contributed by students. Album mug shots were 
taken by Thornton Studio of New York, New York. Thornton sent photographers to Eckerd once each 
semester and students were asked to come have their pictures taken or sign up for a time via notices sent 
home over the summer, through e-mail, posted in dorms, and posted around campus. All art was drawn by 
staff artists. Melissa Greismann, Jaime Allen, and Michelle Allen, or gotten from the Tayolor Art File. 

Special Thanks to the 1998-99 Hullabaloo staff, Reece Roberson, Patrick Kelly (PK), Dean Tom 
Miller, Glen Anspaugh, Jennifer Bokankowitz, the copy center, the regisU-ar office, Taylor Representative 
Steve Fergusen, Eckerd parents, and all those patient Eckerd students for all of your continuing help an' 
support. No portion of this book may be reproduced without the expressed written consent of the editor.
